Judgement of the Pharaoh: Crime and Punishment in Ancient Egypt

Judgement of the Pharaoh: Crime and Punishment in Ancient Egypt, Weidenfeld and Nicholson 2000.

Ancient Egypt exists in the mainstream imagination as an idyllic place where, for three thousand years, wise pharaohs governed a peaceful and plentiful kingdom. Historians, although sceptical of the truth of this image, have often struggled to penetrate it to explain for a non-specialist audience the realities of life for ordinary Egyptians.

This book illuminates for the first time one hitherto uncertain aspect of everyday life in the Nile Valley: it unmasks ancient Egyptian criminals and their misdemeanours.
