Wars of the Roses bodies found in hotel grounds near Harlech Castle
Archaeologists believe three bodies found in the grounds of Harlech's old Queen's Hotel date from the days when the castle was almost permanently under siege
Workers building a new visitor centre next to Harlech Castle may have stumbled on the remains of three people who may have been caught up in the Wars of the Roses.
The bodies were found near the grounds of the Castle Hotel last Thursday.
Historic monuments group Cadw suggests building foundations also dating back to medieval times have been found at the site.
Archaeology Wales are carrying out further excavations in the hope of finding more human remains.
