Recently, I blogged about one of my favourite Spanish writers, Miguel de Cervantes, who penned the wonderful novel Don Quixote. In my post, I noted that he was buried in an unmarked grave and an initiative was launched to trace his remains.
Just a few days later, I read in the news that scientists believe they have found the bones of Cervantes, his wife and others recorded as buried with him in Madrid’s Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians. Details of the archeological find are online here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-31852032.
How wonderful for Spain, to be able to honour this ‘Prince of Letters’ at last.
