Lorca federicoThe search for the remains of Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca might be resumed in July, depending on economic resources and administrative permits, according to archeologist Javier Navarro.

The technical director of the project to find common graves from the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) in Alfacar, Granada, told Prensa Latina that he was certain about the area where the remains of the assassinated intellectual are buried.

After the Board of Andalusia (regional government) withdrew its financial support, the search has been funded by the Cultural Association Regreso con Honor (, through micro donations from institutions and individuals from all over the world.

In his report on the last works in Alfacar, handed over to Prensa Latina, the archeologist described the result of geo-archeological and geophysical investigations as positive and with good prospects.

Navarro explained that when prospecting with a georadar they detected three alterations in the subsoil as the most probable locations of graves sought in an area where the land was removed in 1997 to build a soccer field.

According to the experts, it is logical to think that the grave was found, although he cannot be certain about the finding until it is verified using archeological methods.
