Excavations of the caliph's residence in Samarra began in 1911 - a mammoth project in every respect. The finds still form a cornerstone of the collection of the Museum of Islamic Art.

In the meantime, museum staff members have returned to Iraq to conduct research in the al-Hira residence.

  • PD Dr. Martina Müller-Wiener, deputy director of the Museum of Islamic Art
  • Stefanie Janke, research associate of the project "Legal - Illegal". Staff member of the "Legal - Illegal?" project.

We will explore the questions of how archaeological practice and the handling of finds have changed on site and in the museum.
