Day of Archaeology

Today is a special day in the archaeology world: across the pond, archaeologists have organized a “Day of Archaeology”, a blogging event where archaeologists from all around the world contribute a blog post about what their typical day looks like. The purpose is many-fold: to give the public an idea about what archaeologists do, to combat some myths about our daily lives (ahem, Indiana Jones), and to have some fun. I found it interesting to read the posts to see what other archaeologists are up to. You can follow the action at the Day of Archaeology website and on Twitter through the hashtag #DayofArch

At any rate, I encourage you to check it out. And, while you’re there, go ahead and read my submission: “A Day: Service, Dissertation, and Happy Hour”
