Through the promotion about volunteering of the people, who handed the ancient artefacts over the past two months, APSARA Authority has received six ancient ceramics, four of them are currently stored (two of them are preserved at the Norodom Sihanouk-Angkor Museum) preserved and maintained by the experts of Angkor International Center of Research and Documentation of APSARA.

Mr. Thy Sereyvuth, a ceramics conservation and repository expert at the Angkor International Center of Research and Documentation, describes how to conserve these ceramics: First, we clean these ceramics to remove mosses and salts and then squeeze them in the least mineral water for three days, pour salt, and once a day until salted. After drying, it is advisable to reinforce it by using B72 and B42 glue with chemical substance in order to apply this liquid to these potteries. Because these ceramics do not have anything to fix, it does not take much time. All the ceramics are also recorded dates, locations, and backgrounds for documentary and research, as well as exhibited at museum.
