Pyramids, power and the dynamics of states in crisis

Project: Research

Project Details


The Australian Research Council funded Project (FT170100288) aims to transform existing narratives on the impact of Egypt in the Pyramid Age (c. 2670–2200 BC), demonstrating the influence of large state entities as drivers of societal change in the ancient world. The Project transcends academic disciplines and modern borders by networking scientific analysis with archaeological and historical evidence, from across the eastern Mediterranean. The intended goal of the Project is an expansive vision of international relations in the third millennium BC, which elevates Egypt as a driver of economic, social and political change. In a region currently troubled by much turmoil, the shared nature of global issues across time and space, and the human response, will be evident.
