A collection of real-life experiences told by archaeologists around the world.
Perth, Australia (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Archaeologist Sue T. Carter knows full well the risks and rewards of a career in archaeology. She also knows how often people confuse it with the study of dinosaurs hence the title of her new book, “We Don’t Dig Dinosaurs!” (published by Xlibris AU). Here, she sheds light on this fascinating field of study and the interesting and varied experiences that can happen along the way.
“We Don’t Dig Dinosaurs!” is a collection of real-life experiences told by archaeologists around the world. The stories are diverse and give an insight into the many aspects that make up archaeology– animals, the environment, human remains, community involvement and even fantasy-related archaeology.
“I doubt there is one archaeologist that has not been asked if they dig dinosaurs,” Carter says, “We study the human past which can sometimes be a very dangerous but rewarding career choice and it can take you all around the world, both excavating and researching.”
Authoritative, accessible and engaging, “We Don’t Dig Dinosaurs!” will be of particular interest to archaeology students, aspiring and practicing archaeologists and armchair critics.
