    Unhappy

    I was just wondering if anyone out there shared my other love, which is Archaeology. If so what area's do you specialize in or have a great interest in. I personally want to specialize in South East Asian or pacific Island Archaeology.

    This is just a curious question.

    Does digging 4 and 5 foot deep holes when I was a kid count?

    My wife enjoys history and when she was younger, wanted to go out on a dig. She thinks it would be fun.

    As long as it was in 10cm levels, well documented and you had good clean bulk walls LOL.

    Actully digs are a lot of fun if you enjoy archaeology. Though may i recomend not digging when its over 45C in the shade, thats no longer fun and is just a form of archaeological torture.

    Not finding anything can be fustrating, but then after a few days and too many holes to count you find that perfect intact projectile point or deep relief bowl fragment and it makes it all worth it and you dont want to stop digging.

    I've found lots of arrowheads and pot shards but that's as far as it goes.
