This chapter discusses the reconstruction work on the fragments of the Stundenritual (Ritual of the Hours of the Day) in the tomb of Karakhamun. Research was carried out in August 2013 and continued in May 2014. In 2013, it had been possible to document in digital photographs about 300 fragments put in a sandbox—a time-consuming process because fragments of different sizes, weights, and depths had to be adjusted with a level in both directions and the camera as well. In May 2014, the author made a (successful) test with another method for documenting the fragments: using a scanner. The preliminary reconstructions have progressed, especially for the Third, Seventh, and Eighth Hours. The reconstruction of the Eighth Hour of the Day, for instance, has improved considerably.
