Ancient Resource Auctions

"Gabriel Vandervort's career began as a producer and writer of ancient history documentaries for the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, and History International. His love of history quickly brought him into the world of collecting coins and artifacts from the ancient world, as he began networking with local auction houses, artifact dealers and experts in the field, such as Joel Malter and David Sear. His passionate hobby quickly turned into a full-scale business as he began acquiring ancient coin and artifact collections from sources around the world. In 2003, Gabriel left the History Channel and Ancient Resource was born. Soon his client base spanned cultures and continents, and he enjoys a loyal, dedicated following that continues to grow. As his business expands, Gabriel spends time conducting research and traveling extensively throughout Egypt, Jordan, Western Europe, Turkey, Greece, and the former Czech Republic. In 2008, Ancient Resource incorporated and evolved into the live auction house it is today. We feature established and trusted collections from across the globe, all painstakingly authenticated and guaranteed. Drop us a call or an email... we're famous for our professional, fast, and friendly service."

Thank you Gabriel!
I've done business with Gabriel and Ancient Resource Auctions on and off for several years now and have been continually impressed by the level of professionalism, accuracy, integrity, and good customer service. I highly recommend Gabriel and ARA, especially to those who may be lacking in personal expertise in ancient and medieval artifacts. Gabriel and ARA know their business, and offer a wide variety of high quality materials at, dare I say, very reasonable prices. The Gabriel is very willing to work with buyers if they have any special shipping needs.

Genuine, Excellent, Great Experience
I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in Ancient Resource’s last auction. I bought multiple Ancient Egyptian lots over the course of both auctions. Very happy with the quality of the items and the experience overall. I did loads of research on many items that were being sold. Everything from the descriptions to the items being sold were accurate and super cool to see. With that I had questions and reaching out to Ancient Resource was a great experience. Prompt, professional, clear. Gabriel was a huge help! I look forward to and hope to take part in the next Ancient Resource auction in the future if any!
