Cervantes remains found in Madrid convent, investigators believe

MADRID (Reuters) - Investigators said on Tuesday they believe remains found under a Madrid convent include those of Miguel de Cervantes, the author of "Don Quixote" and considered the father of the modern novel.

Nearly 400 years after his death, the quest to find Cervantes had led Spanish scientists deep into the sub-soil of a 17th century convent. Some of bones dug up in recent months almost certainly belong to Cervantes, they said.
