How To Get Involved In Archaeology – A short Guide

This short guide is designed to help answer some of the basic questions that are asked about getting started in archaeology, whether as an interested amateur a determined schoolchild or a student getting ready to leave university or college. It can’t be completely comprehensive, without being hundreds of pages long, but hopefully adds enough detail, and links to other resources to satisfy most questions.
Whatever your reason for reading this, please remember that archaeology is supposed to be enjoyable, it’s why you should do it. It won’t make you rich, and probably won’t make you famous, but it might just give you something different in your life.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
