Harlech remains may date to Wars of the Roses

Workers constructing a new visitor center at Harlech Castle in Wales were surprised to find the remains of three people, possibily dating to the time of the Wars of the Roses. Medieval foundations were also discovered, which may mean the site was once a churchyard.

Experts from Archaeology Wales will be doing further archaeological work at the site with the hope of finding more human remains. Dr David Craik, president of the Harlech Historical Society, believes the remains might be traced to the time during the Wars of the Roses when Harlech Castle was under siege, but other experts disagree since the site may also have once been a church burial ground.
