Archaeology is a growing field. With the continued destruction of archaeological sites through increased modernization of our landforms, there is a great need for trained archaeologists, or cultural resource managers.
Besides academic and consulting business opportunities, archaeological jobs are also found in museums, national parks, and state and local historic preservation offices.
In the United States, archaeologists are typically trained as anthropologists, who then specialize as archaeologists for their master's degree.
