remains of Cervantes found

Spanish researchers believes it has found the remains of Cervantes (in bad shape and problematic to individually identify). In 1616 Cervantes was buried   in Madrid's Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians. His wife and others (probably family) were buried near him. The convent was rebuilt in 1673 and the bones were then moved. They've been missing in action ever since. The images of the coffin look like it is disintegrating into slivers. The bones were found using various technology in a forgotten crypt underneath the new building. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-31852032
