We have a temporary page as we approach Christmas. You may have a friend who loves Ancient History and we have many gift options for them, but.....

What if you have a friend who isn't into Ancient History?

Well our new page has some ideas....Classic model cars, trucks, bikes and tractors handcrafted and painted.

These are part of our fundraiser to both supply you with gift ideas and to help fund a charity we regularly support. We support FeedthehungryAustralia with a program that provides 100 meals to needy people for every $6.00.

Every cent of your purchase price goes to them, so in buying a gift, you spend once, give twice, your loved one receives a gift and 100 people per $6.00 spent are fed a nourishing meal.

History that you can feel, touch..........and experience!

Whether you are a lover of ancient history, a school teacher, a home school coordinator or just someone who has a desire to hold a piece of history, we should have something to suit you.

As you can see by the side bar, we have a number of product categories to meet most requirements. If there is something you need but can't find on our site, be it a product or just some information, then use the "contact us" form to inquire. If we haven't got what you need, we may be able to find it for you.

For you educators out there, we are constantly developing new products to help bring your lessons alive! We are working with the relevant school curriculum as well as with some of the education bodies within Australia, to bring you products that will stimulate your students, get them involved and make their learning process easier and more exciting.

Many of our products are interactive. Take a look at our "Archaeology" page for a series of interactive kits for the individual or the classroom. We aim to make learning a memorable experience. Check out our teachers page for ideas.

Why don't we have an ONLINE CHECKOUT?
Due to the nature of our business, we have chosen not to use an online check out. We do have access to one but due to the nature of our product range and varying shipping costs we have chosen not to use it. Let me give you an example. Our products vary in size and weight considerably, from a small papyrus kit to a weighty full size Rosetta Stone. We now ship all over the world, and hence the cost to ship such a huge range of varying products to a wide range of destinations is not a simple one. So what we have chosen to do is, to ship to you at the best possible price for your destination. Within Australia we use couriers as much as possible, but couriers can become expensive in certain areas and hence Australia Post becomes a better option. There are even some times when we deliver products in person. So to purchase an item or if you simply want to know the shipping costs, either use our contact page to send us your inquiry and we will get back to you with the best possible shipping costs. We can then invoice you using a regular invoicing system, that allows you to pay by credit card or Australia Post Money order, or in the case of Schools we do accept Business cheques. We can invoice you with Paypal which is a great secure way to pay with your credit card or we can send you the information to allow you to process your payment with your credit card via Stratapay. With Stratapay you simply phone your credit card information to their office (for the price of a local call within Australia) and we dispatch your goods as soon as the payment appears in our system.(Usually within two working days). You can phone your credit card information through to us and we process you shipment immediately. Products that are in stock are shipped immediately. International orders usually take 7-10 days.
