Summary:
Additional information from Archives staff reads, "Samarra was founded by the Abbasid Caliph al-Mu'tasim (r. 833-842) in 836 AD to serve as his imperial capital. [...] The construction of the many mosques and palaces at Samarra fostered an early flowering of architectural decoration. What mainly survives today are wall revetments in carved stucco and wall paintings on fine gypsum surfaces. Earlier Iranian (Sassanian) decorative styles influenced much of the carved stucco panels found at Samarra. The decoration was primarily based on vegetal forms but later developed into more abstract motifs. The wall paintings illustrate a wide range of subjects such as geometric patterns and courtly scenes with figurative representations of listening and playing music, banqueting and dancing. Depictions of animals, especially camels and birds also feature on fragments recovered from the site. [...] Construction halted at Samarra in about 880 AD and later was abandoned by the Caliph and his court in 892." [Lucia Burgio, Robin J.H. Clark, Mariam Rosser-Owen, "Raman analysis of ninth-century Iraqi stuccoes from Samarra", Journal of Archaelogical Science 34 (2007) 756-762."]
Additional information from Archives staff reads, "No existing negative. Possible Inventory Number, based on Finds Journal: IN-71."

Summary:
Original handwritten notes on drawing reads, "Haus XI H sketchbook; Haus IX; Haus X; from sketch book. Samarra, unpublished."
The identification of the residential sites: "Herzfeld numbered all sites while the excavation was still in progress. When it became obvious that two courtyards with adjacent rooms turned out to belong to the same complex, however, he assigned new numbers. Herzfeld gave numbers to 16 houses in various locations, splitting certain buildings, [...] naming in all 24 different sites. [...]. Unfortunately, Herzfeld changed the numbering of the houses a third time when he finished the final drawings for the publication, including only 14 houses. [...]. In those cases in which Herzfeld noted on his field sketch either the name of the area or the new numbering of the house we can at least identify the site."
