Thats fine except I'm sure we've all met people who've spent far longer than that in the field and still sit on their elbow.

very true, ouch! :p And anyway such a requirement would be contrary to ageism legislation and rightly so. Length of experience sadly does not always correspond to competency in the field or elsewhere.
working on site should be an apprenticeship for all other archaeological jobs

Really?!? Why? Not everyone wants to get their knees dirty! They may just be into earthwork or other survey, or perhaps illustration. But no, everyone must dig, dig, dig... :face-approve:
its what you do when you want to become an archaeologist
nah, it's what you do when you want to be an archaeologist. Each to their own :face-kiss:
quite funny foxy
it's no joke PP
no - you are quite funny
in 5 years' time will you still be squabbling?

tho i would say that CAs and consultants ought to have some other experience of the discipline rather than - and i fear that this is going to become more common - a quick root around site during and immediately after degree before an internship leads to full-time employment and exclusive experience of a particular sub-discipline of heritage industry management to the detriment of a broader experiential grounding in other esoteric sub-disciplines

it is often hard to appreciate the importance of things without first-hand experience of them
