For anyone thinking about becoming an archaeologists…..

Charles A. Hay is a field archaeologist currently working for Wessex Archaeology. He has worked for 3 other archaeological units, including Cambridge Archaeological Unit and the University of Sheffield. His writings, including investigations of philosophy and original short stories, can be found at Have A Philosophy, whilst his drawings, musings and photographs can be found at Human Friendly. If you find him in a pub, he’ll have a pint of Pendle or a good scotch. If it’s a working day, a black coffee will do.
A few weeks ago (sorry for the delay Dave), I was asked to write about commercial archaeology, the ups and downs, what it involves, how it is as a living, how to get in et cetera. The past fortnight (in fact, I suspect significantly longer, sorry again Dave) I’ve been attempting to come up with something both encouraging and suitably warning, equally weighted, inspirational; a one-stop advice sheet.
