Three bodies have been discovered at the Alamo, inset top right, during an archaeological dig at the national monument in Texas. The remains, which were found in monk burial room, pictured, and church nave at the historic mission, were 'indicative of a teenage or young adult, infant, and large adult.' The remains were discovered during an archaeological project to install moisture monitoring equipment at the Alamo, while documenting the 300-year-old structures. The bodies were not moved, and the excavation of the site was halted. Remains also were discovered at that site in 1989 and identified in 1995. Photos of the excavation are pictured, top right. A map has also been produced showing exactly where the work is taking place, bottom right.
