Product Description

Review

'Anyone considering a career in the discipline should read this - unlike most books on archaeology, it will tell you the future.' Current Archaeology

'Flatman is well placed to write such a book, as he can draw on his experience in field archaeology and currently holds positions as both an academic and a local government archaeologist. His accounts are a combination of thorough documentation, good summaries, experience and common sense, and include useful devices, such as interviews with practitioners in the different fields, 'pros and cons' tables, [and] sketches of a 'day in the life' of a particular professional … All in all, this is a book I would recommend to anyone contemplating a career in archaeology, career advisors and those teaching introductory archaeology courses.' Madeleine Hummler, Antiquity

Product Description

Becoming an Archaeologist: A Guide to Professional Pathways is an engaging handbook on career paths in the area of archaeology. It outlines in straightforward fashion the entire process of getting a job in archaeology, including the various options; the training that is required; and how to get positions in the academic, commercial and government worlds. It also includes discussion of careers in related heritage professions such as museums and conservation societies. The book includes a series of interviews with real archaeologists, all young professionals who began their careers within the last ten years. These insider guides offer essential tips on how they got their first job and progressed in their careers. Written in an accessible style, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in the realities of archaeology in the 21st century.
