Abstract

Dissertation Project of Rainer Nutz:

Agriculture was the main economic foundation of the Egyptian society which
flourished in times of political stability as can be seen in the material
culture. Concrete economic information however is very scarce. Therefore it
is necessary to combine the few known elements with assumptions in order to
describe the economic environment in any detail. Assumptions may be based on
information for a different time period or other areas, especially Near
East. Some assumptions will obviously be of hypothetic nature. The
influences of the different elements are to be modeled in order to lead to a
consistent interpretation and to allow sensitivity analysis of these
elements. This analysis will identify assumptions and estimates leading to
plausible results which are sufficiently stable in terms of variations of
parameters. Obviously the result will not describe how it was but how it
might have been.
