Paul is a painter and author of 26 books including, The Secret Language of the Stars, The Long Trip, Spirit Roads and Mysterious Ancient America. Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts; Senior Research Fellow, International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL) group, Princeton; and an Honorary Member of the Scientific and Medical Network, Paul’s interests in archaeology focus on “cognitive” aspects, trying to “get inside” the prehistoric mind, and “the anthropology of consciousness”. This led him to co-founding and co-editing a new peer-reviewed, academic publication, Time & Mind: The Journal of Archaeology, Consciousness and Culture (Berg Publishers). He is currently a research affiliate with the Royal College of Art working on an audio-visual study of Mynydd Preseli, the source area in Wales of the Stonehenge bluestones (see the Landscape & Perception pages on this website). His talk at CPAK 2009 will be on the subject of archeo-acoustics.
