Herzfeld at Samarra

The Smithsonian Institution's Collections Search Center announced on their blog this morning the launch of a new

Samarra Resource Page
Ernst Herzfeld’s archaeological excavation of Samarra will mark its 100th anniversary in 2011.  To honor the occasion, the Freer|Sackler Archives has created the Samarra Resource Page that collates collections online content, social media content, and related scholarly content, to provide an easy central resource for all of the Herzfeld paper materials and products.  Preservation, digitization, and cataloging have been made possible by the Leon Levy Foundation.
