Archaeologists in Spain have discovered 16 skeletons in the search for the remains of Red Hugh O'Donnell, a leader of the Irish alliance in the Nine Years War during the 16th and 17th centuries.
O'Donnell died in Valladolid in Spain while en route to persuade King Philip III of Spain to send an army to Ireland to help defeat the British forces. The Irish chieftain was buried in the Chapel of Marvels, which was part of a Franciscan monastery in the Spanish city.
