Shop Information

We are open from 10-6 Monday through Friday and 10-4 on Saturdays. Dark Age Antiquities is an affiliate of Frameworks and Army of Tennessee Civil War Relics. I am in and out quite a bit due to trade shows, auctions and digging adventures so appointments are highly recommended. Josh Staunton (my brother in law and owner of Frameworks) is at the shop full time and is available to take calls and forward me messages. Amy Raye and Bekka Baxter, our Warrior Queens can also assist you. We are located right off I-40 on exit 378 (Cedar Bluff ).

Our Shipping Information

$6.00 minimum shipping and packaging charge. USPS Priority Mail and First Class is the most reliable and therefore what I mostly use. Insurance is included in all shipping costs. Registered mail is what I recommend for expensive items with high insurance coverage. International shipping is also available.


All antiquities and ancient jewelry are guaranteed authentic forever and you have a five day inspection period to return any item that you may not be satisfied with. Please return all items in the same condition that they were sent and you will receive a full refund minus the postage costs.


If you are interested in in selling an ancient antiquities collection, you may wish to consider consignment. It takes longer than selling outright but you will get top dollar for your relics and I take care of the marketing, shipping, collecting payments and all liabilities. You
get paid immediately when your items sell. It is important that artifacts are priced competitively in order to have a reasonable chance of selling. My minimum commission is 15% and there is some flexibility on high dollar items. I consistently find buyers for quality artifacts.

We buy antiquities

I am always looking to buy quality antiquities and ancient jewelry items. I am particularly interested in Viking Age artifacts exhibiting the Borre, Ringerike, Jellinge and Urnes art forms.
If you have an item you are considering selling, please do not hesitate to give me a call or e-mail.


I offer free unwritten appraisals and can also provide (for a fee)
a certificate of appraisal for insurance and legal purposes.


I buy with a collectors eye. I try to be as discriminating as I can and only want to offer the most honest, untouched and best quality items to my fellow collectors.
