Archaeologists have unearthed prehistoric settlements, a medieval millstream and a Victorian riverboat, and they have traced the area’s industrial heritage. As the landscape changed over time, so did the lives of the people who lived and worked here. Now the site of the 2012 Games has changed again, renewing and building on the past to create a legacy for the future.
