This chapter describes the conservation and reconstruction work carried out in the tomb of Karakhamun during the period 2012–2014. Full reconstruction of the tomb of Karakhamun in the South Asasif necropolis was carried out continuously following the excavation of the damaged areas. So far, one pillar and two pilasters, featuring the text of the Book of the Dead chapters (BD) 58, 72, 82, 92, 94, 106, and 119 and the Tenth–Twelfth Hours of the Day were reconstructed in the western section of the First Pillared Hall. The chapter also discusses the reconstruction of the area of the Tornische, the architectural and decorative features of the Second Pillared Hall in the tomb, and the conservation of the burial chamber and vestibule in the same tomb.
