About James Greig

        James is an enthusiastic guide, well used to 

         ‘cutting a channel’ to make complicated topics

          accessible and relevant. He studied Law at

           Kings College London and Theology

          at Cambridge.  His career in private legal

          practice in London and Oxford was broken by

         9 years in full-time Christian ministry, teaching

       the Bible in collegiate cities and inner-city

    London. He is married to Emily with two adult children. 

James has visited many of the best-known museums in the world for manuscripts and biblical artefacts, including the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, Ashmolean in Oxford, Oriental Institute in Chicago, Louvre in Paris, National Archaeological Museum in Athens and Israel Museum and Shrine of the Book Museum in Jerusalem.  


He has been on two archaeological tours in Israel.  He enjoyed the first one so much that he was asked to lead one of the groups on his second tour!  He has led tours in the British Museum for over 30 years and trained a number of other guides.
