In 2012 millions of people across the globe marvelled at the spectacle that was the London Summer Olympic Games, with thousands flocking to England’s capital to enjoy the sporting action first-hand. However, visitors to the new Olympic Stadium may not have realised that the site and surrounding area is steeped in history. Beneath the 2012 Olympics sets out to explore the rich heritage of the local environment and uncover the hidden East London story. As soon as the last medal had been awarded work began on developing the Olympic site to create the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park. This fascinating new illustrated guide lifts the lid on the ancient, smokey, noisy, historical London that paved the way for this thriving new London suburb. Dip inside and discover original movie makers, railway magnates, old Etonians, famous actors, innovators, inventors, Olympic boxers and many more. This compelling book is a must-have for anyone who enthused about the 2012 Olympic Games and all those with a keen interest in social history.
