Scientists Look For Bones Of 'Don Quixote' Writer

Over the weekend, a team of 20 scientists gathered at the Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians in Madrid to examine bones found in the chapel's crypt, bones that may belong to Cervantes, who was buried in the convent in an unmarked grave 399 years ago.
