Paul James Cowie, Captured pre-dig, Albright Institute, Jerusalem, July 2002

Paul James Cowie, born in Manly, a suburb of Sydney, Australia in May 1968.

I moved to London in January 1998, where I reside indefinitely, working and completing my studies, in addition to travelling extensively throughout the world.

An archaeologist by training and profession, I am currently engaged in the heady task of completing my doctoral dissertation on the relationship between Egypt and Syria-Palestine in the Late Bronze Age. I have excavated extensively in Egypt, Jordan and Israel and had several forays into the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

I am the editor of a well-visited web portal dedicated to the Ancient Near East and Egypt - for those interested in the ancient history and culture of the Middle East and the Nile Valley, it can be found at: http://www.ancientneareast.net/ . The Ancient Near East and Egypt page on that domain has a bit more about me, including several more images and a link to my CV (incomplete) if anyone's interested.....

Countries I have visited (and sometimes lived and worked in) during the last decade (not an exhaustive list!): Australia (of course), Austria, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, New Zealand, Poland, Turkey, and the United States.

Most Recent Overseas Travel:

  • late October 2004 - Krakow in southern Poland for a city break, fulfilled a long-term ambition to visit the site of Auschwitz
  • early December 2004 - city break in Paris, France
  • Easter 2005 - visit home to Sydney, Australia - family, friends and university....
  • spent a week in New York, 29 May - 3 June, after a 6 year absence (!) - birthday celebrations and living it large.....
  • renewed excavation at Tel Rehov (just south of Beth Shean) in Israel, late June - August 2005

Current Travel Plans

Travelling though northern France with my parents in late October 2005, returning to Paris, after their trip to Italy
