Doug Bradstreet is bringing the past to life in Lincoln City. The tagline on the Prehistoric Oregon website says it all:
WHERE EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIn
I went to Prehistoric in downtown Lincoln City to interview the shop owner. It quickly turned into the owner giving me a narrative tour of his collection. Some of the best and rarest artifacts I have ever laid eyes on. There were Megalodon teeth in pristine condition that could still cut you. These teeth were over 15 million years old. 15 million!
Bradstreet gave me a tour that would rival any given by the Smithsonian. I am a fan of everything he has in Prehistoric and him telling me about each individual piece was icing on the cake. He went into great detail, all the while keeping me interested.
Prehistoric is owned by Doug Bradstreet. He has over 16 degrees and is a world renowned gemologist. His 25 years of digging, examining, and acquiring the best and rarest has made him an expert collector. Bradstreet is brimming with interesting facts. You can tell collecting rare artifacts is his passion and he may be the best at it.
He says 99% of the items in his shop are authentic. I believe it.
