Job Description for Archaeologist

While the popular image of the profession might be informed in the public eye by the Indiana Jones movies, there's little of the swashbuckling and danger involved in being an actual archaeologist. Many persons who work as archaeologists are not even employed by universities. More and more, construction and civil engineering companies are finding the need for having archaeologists on staff. Public works departments in city and state government are also likely to employ archaeologists. These employees still work with the artifacts and remains of long-departed cultures, but they typically do so under very controlled circumstances.
