December 19, 2011

0

Last week I looked at why archaeologists in the Western half of the USA make more money then those on the Eastern half. I looked at some factors like size of states, population, number archaeology/anthropology programs available locally, etc. which had very low correlations with the pay patterns.

Dr. Janice Happer, an anthropologists herself, wrote a very interesting opt. ed. “Why Florida Gov. Rick Scott Was Right To Slam Studying Anthropology“.
