John J. Ambrose holds degrees from Drexel University (Philadelphia) and Columbia University (New York). He has also studied archaeology and classical art history at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA), and is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Catacomb Society. He is also a member of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE). He maintains strong relationships with dealers, collectors, museum curators and scholars worldwide, especially in Europe where he lived from 1989 to 1992.

A long-time collector and connoisseur of antiquities, Ambrose possesses an untiring passion for studying and preserving elements from our classical past. He established Fragments of Time on January 1, 1994, with a mission to provide high quality, aggressively priced ancient art to all, especially today's generation of new collectors who are desirous of building a meaningful collection within budgetary limits.

Four times per year, Fragments of Time publishes professionally researched, full-color catalogues of art from the ancient world. Subscriptions are available for a nominal fee to cover postage and printing. Visit
