An edition dated in 1605 of Miguel de Cervantes famous novel 'Don Quixote' is shown by a librarian at the National Library in Madrid March 10, 2014. Historian Fernando Prado says he is not just tilting at windmills in his quest to find the remains of Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes, the creator of "Don Quixote". Almost 400 years after Cervantes's death, Prado is set to use ground-penetrating radar to peer into the sub-soil beneath an old convent in the heart of Madrid to look for his remains. A dozen elderly nuns cloistered in the 17th Century walled convent have agreed to the search, which will start next month. Born in 1547, Cervantes was buried in Madrid after his death in 1616 - the same week in which William Shakespeare died. REUTERS/Sergio Perez (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY ENTERTAINMENT) less
