As soon as the Japanese team of wood experts arrived, they went together with the Egyptian documentation team to the Egyptian Museum of Cairo (EM) to conduct a preliminary condition check to confirm the target artifacts condition, types of damage, degree of deterioration, and current environment.

The preliminary condition check is very important at this stage in order to determine the conservation policy that will be adopted throughout the project duration, and to finalize the work plan to ensure the delivery of all outputs on time.
