We are able to offer a substantial combined shipping discount for multiple book purchases, but ONLY if you notify us by email telling us what books you wish to purchase, and then allowing us to invoice you directly. Amazon, for instance, as no mechanism for combined shipping discounts. So even though it is our book you are buying from Amazon (or eBay), we are unable to combine those shipments and pass along a combined shipping discount unless we bill you directly. So please, email us a list of books you wish to purchase, and we will send you an invoice reflecting a combined shipping discount via email, directly from our website.

Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology.

I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $1 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email. And yes, my writing style might seem familiar to you. I have given permission to several other eBay sellers to use my written descriptions and historical information, and you'll find my descriptions and histories widely plagiarized by unauthorized eBay Sellers as well (as the ditty goes, the highest form of compliment).
