Ancient Resource LLC

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, Alex Malloy, Stephen Album, Dr. Gerald Eisenberg, Sue McGovern and David Sear.

With an overwhelming number of well-provenanced collections coming in from noteworthy collections and galleries throughout the US and Europe, Gabriel brought in two close friends and fellow experts, Kelly Ramage, formerly long-term cataloguer for Malter Galleries, and Michael Bianco, world-renowned antiquities expert and collector, and this business branched into the auction company Ancient Resource LLC in 2008.
