Scope and Contents:
The material from the excavations at Samarra, except for the photographs mounted in Photo Files 19--3, and drawings which are in Series 5: Drawings.
"Two campaigns of excavation at Samarra in Iraq, carried out by Ernst Herzfeld on behalf of the Kaiser Friedrich Museum in Berlin between the years 1911 and 1913 mark the beginning of large-scale archaeological research on Islamic antiquities. During this time, Herzfeld was supported for brief periods by the swiss architect Samuel Guyer, Commander von Ludloff, various technical assistants, and finally Friedrich Sarre, who was the director of the Islamic department at the museum and initiator of the expedition. For most of the time, however, all tasks that today would be divided among a team of archaeologists rested solely on Herzfeld's shoulders: coordinating hundreds of workmen at various sites, measuring buildings, drawing architecture and objects, and cataloging finds, but also negociating with local authorities who were often uncooperative. Still working at a time when the success of a venture such as the Samarra expedition was measured by its spectacular finds in both architecture and precious objects, the immense responsibility for bringing this expedition through the unexplored territories of Islamic archaeology to a successful conclusion presented an enormous physical and psychological challenge. In an effort that from the perspective of modern archaeology must be called Herculean, he excavated and examined nineteen sites [Great Mosque of al-Mutawakkil, Congregational Mosque of Madinat al-Mutawakkiliyya, Shiite Shrine Complex, Qubbat al-Ṣulaibiyya; palaces of Balkuwārā, Ṣūr ʿĪṣā, and the Qaṣr al-ʿĀshiq; the Cemetery at Shabbat al-Hawā; Mausoleum of Imām al-Dūr; Tall al-ʿAlīq; Ḥarba Bridge and finally the residential architecture at al-Quraina, al-Qāṭūn, al-Jubairiyya, and west of Ṣūr ʿĪṣā, and the baths] and collected a stupendous corpus of material, one that in many respects still forms the foundation for our knowledge of the city of Samarra and ʼAbbāsid art in the 3rd/9th centuries. What is astonishing is that Herzfeld himself considered his achievements during the first campaign in Samarra to be merely a dress rehearsal for the more ambitious second campaign which focused on the Dār al-Khilāfa." [Leisten, Thomas, 2003: "Excavation of Samarra, v. I. Architecture : Final report of the first campaign 1910-1912. Verlag Philipp von Zabern, Mainz am Rhein, 2003. Preface, p.IX."]

Scope and Contents:
- Original caption in German reads, "Fund Journal." Translated caption in English reads, "Finds Journal."
- Additional information for the first campaign reads, "Herzfeld started to excavate at the Great Mosque of Samarra on January 9 and finished the work on February 26, 1911 [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-1 through IN-46]. The same day that the excavation in the Great Mosque was closed, work began at al-Quraina. Here, Houses I-X were excavated mainly during March and the first week of April 1911. Work on House IX continued through May since outstanding fresco paintings were discovered there [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-47 through IN-50; IN-61 through IN-65; IN-69 through IN-205; IN-208]. In the first week of April, Herzfeld split his groups of workers to be able to examine three more sites simultaneously. In a two-day campaign he cleared House XI at Qātūn [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-206 and IN-207]. At the same time, excavation began on a residential complex situated to the west of Ṣūr ʿĪṣā palace [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-209; IN-215 through IN-227; IN-257 through IN-266]. Finally two baths were discovered to the west of the Great Mosque [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-210 through IN-214; IN-267]. Activity at all three sites ended between April 9 and 11. Herzfeld spent the third week of April documenting the excavations in the Great Mosque and registering small finds. In the second half of May [May 8-28] Herzfeld started to work on two more sites. During work at a place called Shabbat al-Hawā, they found a pre-islamic cemeterey beneath the Islamic layers. The cemetery was explored between May 15-25 [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-295 through IN-384; IN-477 through IN-480]. A second excavation was carried out in what Herzfeld then referred to as House XVII (May 15-28) north of Jubairiyya [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-385 through IN-403]. More excavations of residential architecture were undertaken to the north of the modern city in an area called 'kūra,' [May 8-13] [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-270 through IN-294]. With a few of the remaining workers Herzfeld moved to the Qaṣr al-ʿĀshiq on May 28, only to leave them on June 3 for the first of a series of excursions he took in the course of both campaigns. He returned as late as June 30 [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-404 through IN-476]. On the way back he visited the mausoleum at al-Dūr for the first time. On July 13, Herzfeld complained that work in ʿĀshiq had not brought results. In an attempt to change this situation he sent his trusted friend Shaul to Ḥilla to hire workmen from this region. With a total of 70 workers he began to clear structures at Manqūr during the last week of July that soon turned out to be the central audience hall of Balkuwārā [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-481 to IN-488; IN-491 to IN-499]. On August 30, Herzfeld, convinced of the need for plans in order to obtain funding for a second campaign in Samarra, decided to stop the excavation at Manqūr immediately and to suspend all excavations for two more months until the arrival of Friedrich Sarre in October 1911. During the first week of December 1911, Herzfeld was still at work finishing the leveling of Qaṣr al-ʿĀshiq [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-500 through IN-508]. Only now, in the last two weeks of the first campaign in Samarra [December 9-25], were Viollet's finds examined. On the last day before he left {December 9-11], Bartus by chance found a building on the west side of the Shāriʿ al-Aʿẓam. The walls were covered with a set of frescoes showing human figures and various animals, the most interesting so far discovered in this campaign [According to the Finds Journal, finds were collected and listed as IN-513 to IN-516]. [The last registered entry (IN-553) for the first campaign in Samarra reads, "December 18, 1911."]. On December 25, Bedri Bey arrived at Samarra and drew up an official letter ending the campaign according to the proposal of both Sarre and Herzfeld. An inventory of all the finds and tools was made and they were prepared for storage." [Leisten, Thomas, 2003: "Excavation of Samarra, v. I. Architecture : Final report of the first campaign 1910-1912. Verlag Philipp von Zabern, Mainz am Rhein, 2003. p. 11-19."]
- Additional information for the second campaign reads, "The second campaign's excavation was mainly concerned with the Dār al-Khilāfa. According to the Finds Journal, The first find (IN-554) of the second campaign was collected and registered on December 3, 1912. Finds registered as IN-554 through IN-829 were carefully listed with sketches, location, description, date of discovery, inventory number and cross-references to photographs and sketchbooks. The last find of the second campaign (IN-1004) has no date since dates of discovery were consistently provided through IN-948 only."
- Additional information for the end section of the Finds Journal reads, "The remaining registered finds (IN-1005 through IN-1161) appear to have been unconsistently listed at a later period. Sketches, location, description, date of discovery, and cross-references to photographs and sketchbooks are partly missing for most of the entries. The locations appear to cover various excavated sites from both the first and the second campaign in Samarra."
- Additional information from staff reads, "IN-874 (7/9, p.2)."

Scope and Contents:
Account of trip from Berlin via Brindisi, Beirut, Raqqa, Baghdad, arriving in Samarra January 9, 1911. Followed by description of excavations through September 11, 1911.
- Original caption reads, "Samarra Tagebuch I, Ernst Herzfeld."
- Additional information reads, "Diary 1 starts with Herzfeld's journey from Lebanon to Aleppo, Syria, in the winter of 1910. It describes the crossing of Herzfeld's little caravan through eastern Syria along the Euphrates with frequent stops at sites of archaeological interest (Abu Huraira, Salihiyya-Dura Europos) and his way from Abu Kamal via Hit and Ana to Baghdad, which he reached in early December of 1910. [The bulk of the diary] conveys a remarkably consistent picture of the work carried out by Herzfeld between 1911 and 1912. It [is] a critical presentation of the congregational mosques in Samarra and Mutawakkiliyya as well as the mosques at Balkuwārā, followed by the enigmatic Qubbat al-Ṣulaibiyya. [It also focuses on] the history of the Samarra excavation before [...] World War I, [which is] inseparable from the international politics of its time. In addition, the life of an excavator at the turn of the century in such rough circumstances was inherently an adventure, as Herzfeld's diaries [and letters to Sarre] testify, in a tone that ranges from dry to emotional, and even humorous. [Finally] under the heading 'Samarra, January 9th, 1911, three pages containing a list of buildings that Herzfeld had visited or documented during his sojourn in Baghdad; eight pages containing topographical and personal names that Herzfeld encountered in the Samarra area and their correct Arabic spelling, pronounciation, etymology, and localization; two pages containing columns of figures; and three pages on desiderata in Aleppo." [Leisten, Thomas, 2003: "Excavation of Samarra, v. I. Architecture : Final report of the first campaign 1910-1912. Verlag Philipp von Zabern, Mainz am Rhein, 2003. p. 153; p. 162; p. 168.; pg.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 1: Travel Journals; Diary of Two Expeditions From Samarra (Iraq) to Sulaimaniya (Iraq) and to Ctesiphon (Iraq)
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Travel Journals were included in a larger body of diverse material acknowledged by Ernst Herzfeld as his study collection. In the early 1970s, Joseph Upton, for research purpose, rearranged the collection and created a specific series (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 1: Travel Journals, 1905-1928) for eight travel journals. For some reason, Upton has given this journal an accession number related to the series he created for the Samarra material (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 7: Records of Samarra Expeditions, 1906-1945), probably following Herzfeld's original organization.
