Bárta, M. 2015. Ancient Egyptian History as an Example of Punctuated Equilibrium: An Outline. In: P. D. Manuelian and T. Schneider, editors, Towards a New History for the Egyptian Old Kingdom. Perspectives on the Pyramid Age. Brill, Leiden, Boston. p. 1-17.

The present study attempts to identify and characterise some basic principles that underlined historical development in ancient Egypt, specifically during the Old Kingdom period. Looking at the ever-increasing corpus of the evidence, it applies the theory of punctuated equilibrium for explaining some of the major features operating human society in a diachronic perspective. The explanatory potential of the punctuated equilibrium concept seems to work rather well when applied to the historical evidence we have at hand. As a consequence, Old Kingdom history is not any more a rather...

The Location of New Kingdom Elite Tombs - Space, Place and Significance

This paper deals with the significance of provincial New Kingdom elite tomb location.

It focuses especially on the tomb, the pivotal component of the elite's monumental display. A unique perspective is adopted, derived from both the sociology of space and cultural anthropology.

2015 Egyptians in Babylonia in the Neo-Babylonian and Achaemenid Periods

Cuneiform sources from the first millennium BCE yield numerous references to Egyptians in Babylonia. They locate these individuals in different social settings and enable us to study social interactions of Egyptians with Babylonians and – later on – Persians. This paper presents a survey of the different socio-economic contexts in which these individuals can be found and discusses the role Egyptians played in Babylonia in the Neo-Babylonian and Achaemenid periods, thus facilitating a better understanding of the nature, and implicitly also of the quantitative dimension, of the Egyptian...
