Conservation Note:
Prior to the actual assembly of the sides of the box, it was necessary to separate the fragments into groups of joins and determine exactly where connections with the floor assembly could be made. Assembly of fragments into groups followed the cleaning of dirt from joint surfaces. Epoxy adhesive was used as adhesive. In order to better accommodate the fragment groups being glued, a larger sand box was constructed on the temporary platform at the west end of the central pit floor. For more information on the assembly of the sides of the sarcophagus box, see section V.3.
