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

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.

The William Jamieson Tribal Art website is still visible on the waybackmachine.

The Domain had been redirecting to an Asian advertising site for years. Earlier this year I noticed the 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 email me at

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.
