THE 'treasures' dug up at the 2012 Olympic site now under construction at Stratford in East London expose a rich and varied history of the area along the River Lea.

Archaeologist Kieron Tyler gives a talk about the artefacts at the Museum of London Docklands on Monday (Dec 1).

They include four prehistoric graves from the Iron Age, a Roman coin and a 19th century boat experts think was used hunting wild fowl on the Lea marshes.

Monday's talk at the museum at West India Quay, near Canary Wharf, starts 7pm. It's free, but places have to be booked ahead by calling 020-3201 2235. (DLR to West India Quay)
