Billy (William) Jamieson (3 July 1954 – 3 July 2011) was a Canadian tribal art (Treasure and Antique’s) dealer.

He famously purchased the contents of the Niagara Falls Museum and in the collection discovered the lost mummy of Pharaoh Ramses as well as an unbelievable cache of tribal artifacts and treasures.

He and his fiancée Jessica Lindsay Phillips  starred in the reality show Treasure Trader. A show that follows the couple hunting (and buying) rare treasures from around the globe.

Jessica Lindsay Philips continues to deal in Art and her website can be found here: https://jlphillips.com/

Earlier this year I noticed the jamiesontribalart.com website was down and the domain was for sale. I bought the domain name and decided to make this small tribute page. If anyone feels like they should own this domain name or perhaps think they have a better function for it: please send me an email at info@tribalartcollector.com

Personal note

Treasure trader and Billy Jamieson opened my eyes to tribal art and showed me a world I was not accustomed to. This is the person that got me into collecting… a person I have never met and will never meet changed the direction and course of my life.. all I can say is thank you.

Julien.
