DIGGING for the remains of Federico Garcia Lorca has begun.
A marquee was also erected to conceal the pending excavations of his grave.
The metal installation will ensure that the Granada mass grave believed to hold the Spanish poet’s remains will be dug up in complete privacy.
The structure encompasses six burial pits and covers 200 metres squared.
Once the skeletons are discovered three months of DNA analysis will be undertaken to identify the remains.
A further two bodies are now thought to be buried alongside Lorca after scientists from Granada University carried out a high-tech radar scan of the site.
