2

A few months ago I posted an estimation of the number of people with Archaeology degrees from US Universities. I have since done quite a bit more research on the subject.

I have just received another publication from Emmi Koivisto- Crowdfunding: The future of archaeology in Finland? It is a Master Thesis that looks at the […]
