As can be seen in the graph there has been a huge upswing in salaries being offered for top CRM archaeologists in the US since 2010.

The average is around $30.68 ($64,000 a year) but this assumes that most people fall in the middle between what is the lowest offered salary and the highest. This data is from job postings so reality might be slightly different and the data has a very small sample size which might also affect the results.
