Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on the economy, society and administration of Graeco-Roman Egypt. I am particularly interested in the fundamental problem of how the system of taxation developed and changed from the first to the third century AD, and how the fiscal burden affected village society and its economic activities. My current project, entitled 'Village economy and society: early Roman Tebtunis', aims to construct the first detailed village study for the Roman Empire, for Tebtunis, in the Fayum. The main evidence is the archive of Kronion, who ran the local 'notarial office' of the village of Tebtunis. This remarkable sample of the economic activities in the village enables study of the socio-economic stratification of village society.
