A 400-year-old burial site, which was discovered in 2013, contained the remains of Scottish prisoners of war.

The skeletons were found near Durham Cathedral, north-east England, during work on Durham University's Palace Green library.

Experts have dated the bones to 1650, and say they could be from hundreds of soldiers who fought a big battle in the 17th century.
