Ernst Herzfeld first visited Persepolis in November 1905 during his expedition return from the Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) excavation. During the two last months of 1923 as well as early March 1924, He spent six weeks on the terrace of Persepolis, drafting a plan and providing a photographic record of the whole structure. In 1928, the architect Friedrich Krefter joined Herzfeld in Persia, in an expedition funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, to complete various measured plans and drawings in Persepolis. Excavations were begun on March 1, 1931, now under the auspices of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Ernst Herzfeld left Persepolis permanently in Spring 1934.
