Jobs in Archaeology: Part 2


As a READ Archaeologist (i.e. a resource advisor to protect stuff during a wildfire), it’s really a race against time and flames to protect vulnerable archaeological sites and artifacts.  I’ve watched a historic cabin go up in flames when it was simply too dangerous to protect it.  I’ve also recorded lithic scatters with ash raining down on my head and a bulldozer waiting for me to get out of the way to make a massive fire-break.  Crazy stuff.
