Last week, I got a text message from a friend of a friend that went something like this: Hey! I have always wanted to learn more about archaeology but I'm not sure how or if I can get involved. Is it too late???
I thought this is a great example of how accessible archaeology is as a field to be excited about (yay!) but how bad we as archaeologists are at spreading the word about getting involved in our exciting field (boo!). And, of course, the perfect topic for a blog post.
First: what is an archaeologist and what do they study?
