"Hey, which pic should we use to lead the  archaeology story?"

"Downblouse.  Always lead with the downblouse."

I don't remember hearing about the find of a Roman legionary Eagle.

I don't remember hearing that Neanderthals had "no chins."  They had jaws and lower teeth, right?

/in other news, the naked mole rat was named Vertebrate of the Year by Science magazine.

Looked crappy to me as I can't find a job in this field. Not that I'm bitter or anything...

There is a farker who is currently working on a site in Turkey. Maybe she has some contacts? I don't have her Fark handle though.

And that is part of the problem, I need fulltime/perm as I have high student loans, even on an income based payment. Always lurking on shovelbums.

I'm pretty convinced this is a dead end field, especially after meeting others in the field through the museum I work at. Considering moving on, which breaks my heart.

Yes, it's a rough business to break into.

It took me 12 years to find a permanent position, archaeology combined with a degree in GIS. The GIS degree is helpful, because I can do work for the other disciplines/departments in the company, when the arch work is slow.

Taking the project by project work gets your foot in the door. Very few companies are going to hire full time until they know your work ethic.

It's easier to get a job with the private environmental firms, the government jobs are next to impossible to get.

Good luck.

A good friend and classmate of mine has excellent credentials as an underwater archaeologist.  He was fortunate enough to find a good museum directorship.  Most of them are working for various CRM or historic preservation groups on the West Coast.  One or two got decent jobs with NOAA, but that place is plagued right now by a combination of elected morons and organizational disarray.

/hoping the NC economy turns around soon, as there's not a huge demand for public historians at the moment

TRC Garrow is based in NC and Atlanta. One of the better southern CRM companies worked for them in the 90's on Fort Bragg. Don't know if they are still in business. The owner takes care of his workers.
