Very little is known about Karakhamun and Karabasken, despite their importance for this period. This chapter lays out the excavation, conservation, and reconstruction of their tombs. It also takes a broader look at the chronology of the necropolis through the architectural development and decoration of the tombs in the area, seeking to understand their places within public and private tombs, as well as to explore the position and lives of their owners.

Keywords:   Karakhamun, Karabasken, Tombs, Excavation, Reconstruction, Conservation
