Biographical / Historical:
The Ernst Herzfeld Papers document the career of Ernst Herzfeld (1879--1948), a German architect, archaeologist, and historian of Islamic and Pre-Islamic studies. After training as an architect he studied archaeology under Delitzch from 1903 to 1906 at the excavations at Assur in Mesopotamia. A student of Latin, Greek, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Hebrew, Herzfeld received a doctorate in Humanistic Studies at universities in Munich and Berlin in 1907. His work with Friedrich Sarre to survey the monuments of the Tigris-Euphrates valleys resulted in landmark studies in architectural history, published in 1911 and 1920.

In 1920 Herzfeld was appointed to the chair of Historical Geography in Berlin and began his excavation at Samarra. Herzfeld's work there led to a six-volume publication. He published widely throughout his life on the sources of Islamic architecture and ornament, including the Royal Palace at Persepolis.

From 1934 until the end of his life Herzfeld spent his time producing many books and articles, lecturing, and working at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton (1936--1945.) Many of his works continue to be published post-humously.

The structures -and hence the cuneiform inscriptions- of Persepolis were thus created in the space of nearly two hundred years. Besides the platform itself, the earliest known monument was undoubtedly the small and yet charming Palace of Darius (the Tachara), which crowns the acropolis at its western quarter. The copies of XPc [were engraved] on the pillars and the south wall of the south portico of the Tachara, which was completed by Xerxes. Here Xerxes speaks of his father's construction of the palace, but architectural indications point to the continuation of the work from the main part of the Tachara to its southern portico, and suggest a date between 486 and 481 B.C."
