Persian Antiquities in Crisis: The Persepolis Tablets at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago
Matthew W. Stolper, a professor of Assyriology at the Oriental Institute and the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago, is the director of the Persepolis Fortification Archive Project, an emergency task force now working urgently to record as much information as possible about these documents while they remain available. He will describe the Persepolis Fortification Archive and discuss its value, the lawsuit that could lead to its sale, and what the Persepolis Fortification Archive Project is doing to meet this crisis.
