ARCHEOLOGISTS

July 3, 2017, 4:11 p.m.

Archeologists examine, recover, analyze and preserve artifacts, human and animal remains, and areas from past human cultures. They connect artifacts with information about past environments to learn about the history, customs, and the living habits of people in earlier eras. The artifacts and remains they examine may include human and animal skeletal remains, tools, pottery, coins, cave paintings, and ruins of buildings.

Archaeologists are responsible for surveying sites believed to be of archaeological significance in order to prepare for an excavation of the area. They must also manage and protect these archeological sites, and work to secure any funding necessary for the project.

Archeologists often specialize in a particular geographic area, period, or objects of study, such as coins, human remains or underwater sites.

Occasionally it is possible for diggers to transfer to more permanent jobs in archaeology. 
 
Master’s Degree: Depending on the requirements of the employer, a master’s degree in archaeology, anthropology or a closely related field is typically sufficient for many applied research positions.
 
Doctoral Degree: To become an archaeologist who works as a university teacher, lecturer or researcher, a Ph.D. in archaeology, anthropology or a closely related field is generally needed.
