Love the entry! I work as an archaeologist in Franklin, Tennessee, USA and can tell you I love my work. Granted I don't get paid loads of money but a hard days work and a cold beer at the end of the day leave me smiling.

A cold beer paid for by the site manager is always welcome after a days digging!

In five years I haven't found a site manager who actually pays for the drinks. Where you diggin'? Any chance of a job?

I'm not a digger any more! just and armchair archaeologist with a few very good books and photos.

The free drinks from the site manager usually come on the last day of the dig, by way of a thank-you for all the muck you've had to wade through.

There are lots of dig opertunities around the UK... have a look at http://www.ukarchaeology.org.uk/ for the latest news on dig places.
