The Worlds Largest Free Provider Of Archaeology Jobs
So the deal has always been if you find a job through ShovelBums I would like you to just shake my (or one of the list moderators) hands someday and say thanks; and if you have a few dollars, buy me a beer and tell me about yourself and your days in the field. But since many of us will never cross paths you can buy me the equivalent of a virtual beer, by buying a bumper sticker on my site here. (you can see some of the bumper stickers in categories here)
I make about $5 on each bumper sticker (actually I make about $5 on almost everything on this site except for children's clothes and a few misc items which I sell basically at cost). I figure $5 is about what a beer would cost at a conference, and by sporting ShovelBums gear you are able to show that you support this free service and want to keep it going!
The free service ShovelBums not only provides more archaeologists with jobs than any other service in the world, but now also produces one of the worlds largest directories of Archaeology Field Schools. ShovelBums has also been instrumental in helping to stop the fundamentalist movement to teach "intelligent design" as science in public schools. Read about the massive petition on no intelligent design as science at: www.shovelbums.org and A Scientific Support for Darwinism on the Wikipedia.
