Restoration

The tomb of Paser could already be restored during the season 1981.  The whole north-west corner, which was much ruined when found due to the 19th-century removal of the British Museum stela, was rebuilt in modern mudbrick. This reconstruction included the wall separating the central chapel from the north magazine. The various limestone elements of the north and west walls of the central chapel were then re-erected and the floor repaired. A wooden screen was raised in front of the central chapel. Afterwards, the whole tomb has been allowed to be refilled by wind-blown sand, so that now it has again disappeared under the desert surface. No further interventions have been carried out during the 2004-2008 conservation project.
