The author of "Don Quixote" was buried in 1616 at the Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians in Madrid's historic Barrio de las Letras, or Literary Quarter, but the exact whereabouts of his grave within the tiny convent chapel are unknown.A team of archaeologists and anthropologists decided to start excavations at the site after identifying what they believe are three unrecorded and unidentified graves in the chapel's crypt. Another group of five white-clad experts painstakingly opened a grave beneath the whitewashed crypt's old terracotta-tiled floor.The author's sister, Luisa de Cervantes, was buried in a convent in Alcala de Henares, 30 kilometers east of Madrid, where she was interred in 1623 .Almudena Garcia Rubio, who is leading the Cervantes project, said Friday that if they do not find Cervantes' remains in the places so far identified, there are four other possible locations at the convent they could try next.
