PhD research

Explaining 'Crime' in Ancient Egypt
supervisors: Olaf Kaper & Lex Cachet (Erasmus University Rotterdam)

Every society has its own definition of criminal behaviour. The ancient Egyptians were focussed on aberrations against strictly defined rules of religious, moral and societal conduct. The aim of my PhD-thesis is to apply relevant modern sociological theory to ancient Egyptian society and explain what the Egyptians in the Middle and New Kingdoms defined as “crime” or more precisely: “deviant behaviour”. The word “crime” is less suitable, because it is a modern term referring to a codified system of law, which the Egyptians didn’t have until the Late Period. The ultimate goal of the research is to identify the causes of such behaviour.
