Socioeconomic aspects of ancient Egyptian private tomb construction: A study on New Kingdom tomb volumetrics as economic markers

  • Rune Rasmus Olsen
The dissertation investigates the socioeconomic parameters of the private tomb construction based on the volumetric size of individual rock-cut tombs. By comparing the archaeological data with the ancient Egyptian textual material, which documented the building process, a new approach for utilizing the vast and largely unexplored volumetric data from Egyptian rock-cut tombs in economic studies is suggested.
