The Archaeologist FAQ

Every Archaeologist knows the public is going to ask these archaeology questions, now you can have all of the answers at the ready all of the time.

  • Do I own a fedora? No
  • Did I go to college to learn how to
    be a ditch digger? Yes
  • Does my family know I dress like this? Yes
  • Am I paid to do this? Poorly
  • Did the indians live in these square holes? No
  • Have I found any gold today? No
  • Have I found any Leaverite? Yes
  • Have I found anything interesting? Sometimes
  • Do we get to keep what we find? No
  • Do I know there is a better site over there? Yes
  • Did I want to be an archaeologist
    when I grew up? Who doesn't?
  • Do archaeologists use brushes? Usually only on TV
  • Is this the coolest profession? Yes

Many archaeology field schools have "public days" where professional archaeologists help the public to understand the benefits of doing good archaeology on prehistoric and historic sites.

Your purchase here helps to support

The Worlds Largest Free Provider Of Archaeology Jobs LLC, founded in 1999, was created with the single goal of providing archaeologists and CRMer's around the world with work in the lab or field. ShovelBums, with 13,000+ (May 2007) member is completely free to its members because of founder R. Joe's (me) philosophy that it is more important for archaeologists and CRMers to find archaeology and CRM jobs than to make a buck.

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: and A Scientific Support for Darwinism on the Wikipedia.
