Technicians attempting to locate the remains of Miguel de Cervantes in Madrid's Trinity Church, have begun the project's anthropological and forensic phase with the aim of searching a crypt containing around 30 burial niches and several underground graves.

It is estimated that the work will last for at least two weeks, according to researchers Luis Alvial, Almudena Garcia Rubio and Francisco Etxeberria, who gave a press conference in Madrid on Friday.
