The Artifact Vault website is run by Brad and Jenyfer Simmerman of Central Missouri. What began in 2003 as a mere diversion and a fun way to spend time together rapidly became a hobby that is an integral part of our lives.
The passion for authentic Native American Indian artifacts and artifact collecting is contagious! We have invested enormous amounts of time and effort in learning about Native American Indians and the artifacts they have left behind; this pursuit of knowledge is ongoing. When we hold an authentic piece of worked stone we see the craftsmanship, we feel the weight of history. We imagine the living hands that worked the rock into an artifact in the beginning, the lives the artifact impacted, the stories it presents from within.
Take part in preserving these unique pieces of history, the story of Man's triumph over adversity and mere chance, the story of life. Own your own piece of history. Checkout what we have to offer and consider purchasing an authentic artifact from
