Transcript of Archeologist
To become an archaeologist, you have to complete at least a master’s degree in archaeology. However, to be eligible for a master’s program, you must first obtain a bachelor’s degree, which takes about 4 years, but because archaeology is a branch of anthropology, people in this field often have bachelor’s degrees in anthropology. It is also possible to get into an archaeology master’s program with a bachelor’s degree in a related subject, such as geography, history, ancient languages, geology, or human physiology.
You need to know a lot about ancient times or older civilizations.
Most of the time you need patience because finding important things can take a lot of time.
Starting salaries for entry-level archaeology professors range from about $43,000 to $57,000 a year, depending on the quality of their research and the wealth of the institution.

The study of human activity in the past, primarily through the recovery and analysis of the material culture and environmental data that has been left behind, which includes artifacts, architecture, biofacts (also known as eco-facts) and cultural landscapes (the archaeological record). Because archaeology employs a wide range of different procedures, it can be considered to be both a science and a humanity, and in the United States it is thought of as a branch of anthropology, although in Europe it is viewed as a separate discipline.
