Over the last week archaeologists have begun to excavate the remains of a shipwreck from the Spanish Armada. Lying off the coast of County Donegal, the timbers, musketballs and pottery found so far  reveal a tantalising glimpse of what else may lie on the sea bed. In this podcast, first released in 2010, you can hear how ships from the Spanish Armada came to lie off the coast of Ireland, what has been found on excavations to date and what else we can expect to turn up.

The Podcast was made in 2010 to celebrate National Heritage Week. This year National Heritage Week is coming up between the 20th and the 28th of August. There is loads of great events on over the 8 days . To find a full list of events check out http://www.heritageweek.ie/
