Ernst Herzfeld first visited the site of Pasargadae in November 1905 while on an expedition from Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) to Shiraz (Iran). In mid-November 1923, he conducted a preleminary campaign, completing various measured plans and drawings. Finally, a four-week session of excavations in April and May 1928, funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, was carried out by Ernst Herzfeld, assisted by the architect Friedrich Krefter.
