Scientists believe that they found the coffin of Miguel de Cervantes. Cervantes was a legendary Spanish writer. His famous novel “Don Quixote” changed Spanish literature in the 17th century.

People found the coffin in a small chapel in Madrid. There are initials of “MC” on it, but experts cannot be sure if the coffin belonged to Cervantes. The remains in the coffin belonged to more than one person. When scientists analyse the remains, we will be able to say if some of them belonged to the writer.
Difficult words: coffin (a long box for a dead person), chapel (a small church), remains (the body of somebody who has died).
