Introduction to Archaeology
Considering that unless you are one of the leaders in the field you are never going to make any money in Archaeology, the science is a hobby for many. Budding historians, amateur scientists, student volunteers, retirees, and many others are taking to the fields and dig sites to uncover the remains of ancient civilizations. Whether you are uncovering pottery shards of an Italian city buried by a volcanic eruption or helping restore an ancient Moche pyramid in Northern Peru you won’t regret it. Joining an archeological expedition can get you much closer to the legendary civilizations of a place far more than a crowd walk around places like the Pyramids of Egypt or Angkor Wat.
