I've never sown olives but a couple of thoughts;
If you picked them from a tree they may not have been ripe
They grow in warm places so shouldn't need a chill.
a picture would help
Is this you Chris?
Good idea Jess, they make a lot of seed and are reliable germinators. They're everywhere here, along with the cyclamen.
They won't take over if you don't let them seed Jess. Their roots aren't invasive.
Do post a pic LLass. Does it take a lot of arm strength to pull out?
My money's on Viburnum as well. Not betting on which one though
I do mine about mid winter. I've done a few. The leaves on mine don't look very pretty by the time the flowers come round but they never all get done.
