5 years time.....
Branching off from the thread 'General Rant'.....

If you were to look forward and imagine 5 years or 10 years from now what advice would you give someone who wanted to work in archaeology at that date?.

Just some suggestions:

  1. If they were a student what course should they be taking i.e straight archaeology, joint honours and to what level, BA/BSc MA/MSc, PhD etc,

    If they are currently in work what skills/additional qualifications should they seek?.

    What will be the most/least employment friendly specialisms in 5 years time?

    Private practice v public employment?

    Community archaeology v commercial archaeology?


    Field archaeology or academia?

    HER/development control v fieldwork?

    UK or abroad?

(I am presuming that some basics driving licence, CSCS card or something similar are a given so we dont need to go over those points again)
