ARCHEOLOGISTS believe they have located the burial site of the Spanish Armada’s crew.
Their analysis of earth disturbances reveal that almost 1,000 soldiers and sailors lie in a burial mound near Spanish Point in Ireland’s County Clare.
It is thought that the crew of two shipwrecked Spanish galleons, the San Marcos and the San Esteban, could be buried there. The wooden ships ran aground over 400 years ago but have never been found.
“If you found the bodies, you’d have to decide whether to exhume them but you’d have to have a very good reason to be digging them up,” military archaeologist Damian Shiels told The Sunday Times.
