Nick Jackson

"Nick was extremely knowledgeable and able to communicate this in a very accessible way. He was able to cover the very wide spread of eras that we were introduced to. He listened carefully to questions and comments and treated them with respect. Nick was a very pleasant companion and participated fully in the life of the tour which we appreciated."

Biography



Nick Jackson graduated from the Institute of Archaeology at University College London, and proceeded to a career as a field director excavating the ancient history of the Eastern Mediterranean in Turkey and the Near East. After a research post at the University of Cambridge, he began work as a guide lecturer in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and Oman, and has continued leading tours to the present day. Nick’s years spent exploring the Eastern Mediterranean provided a unique window into this important area’s past and present. His main research interest is the late 2nd millennium BCE and the proto-Neolithic period, but he has also developed a passion for early Christian places of worship and Byzantine pilgrimage sites.

 

Following an excavation in 1993 in Bolivia for the University of Berkeley, California, Nick moved to Berlin to work at the Academy of Art, and has lived there ever since. When not guiding, Nick lectures on Holocaust Studies at Stanford in Berlin; consults and presents TV documentaries; is a book researcher and sometime journalist.
