Those archaeology days …
RHODES, Greece- This past week’s travel question revolved around studying archaeology and what this profession is actually like. If you’re a long-term reader of this blog you will remember the stories of me traveling around the USA and Latin America working on archaeology sites.
This was my first true profession — the job that predominately funded this journey for roughly eight years. I would spend my summers and autumns buzzing around from archaeology project to archaeology project and then spend the rest of the year backpacking abroad. This was a traveler’s trade — something that demanded you to live on the road — and I had some truly insane and memorable times, however I have some reservations about recommending it to those who are on the hunt for a solid career path.
There is nothing solid about the life of an archaeologist … or pretty much any other profession in this era, as I talk a little more about in this week’s Q&A.
If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask them in the comments below and I will respond to them this Sunday.
