Cataloging and digitization of administrative documents from Persepolis, the chief imperial residence of the Achaemenid kings in the homeland of the ancient Persian Empire.

This proposal seeks funding to support key personnel of the Persepolis Fortification Archive Project, an emergency program conducted since 2006 to record the texts and seal impressions on tens of thousands of clay tablets, a unique but imperiled archive from the heart of the Persian Empire at its height, C. 500 B.C.
