Once the boys back at the lab were able to reconstruct the
specimen sent from the site, the historians at the institute
were able to identify most, if not all, of the components that
had gone into the construction of the ship.
Fortune was such that many of these pieces had be found
earlier at a number of other digs but had been unassigned
because there had not been available any clues as to the
exact nature of their sources.
Technicians are now able to begin to reconstruct the ship
using the rather simple codes revealed by the 02048 tag to
not only determine the components’ structures but also the
manner in which they had been assembled and their likely
locations on the ship.
The work was slow and tedious at times but we are most
encouraged as we now have a clear direction.
