Newbie seeking advice
Dinosaur Wrote:...but judging by 2010-11, some crampons might be handy too...

Since no one else has replied, thankyou for joining this forum and giving us your 'newbie' insights, has been good seeing the profession through fresh (and insightful) eyes for once, and I'm glad you've decided to stick commercial digging out, despite its many drawbacks (pay, toilets etc). Hope you stay for many years to come :face-approve:

Why thank you! It's been fun learning the idiosyncrasies of this industry, and this forum has demonstrated them to a tee Wink Also discovered there is a faster way to spread news than the internet - tell an archaeologist something in confidence! Big Grin

I would like to reiterate something though. If you want to get into this industry but have a different work background or the 'wrong', or maybe even no, degree, that all matters less than a healthy mix of attitude and aptitude. And no desire for riches. And a predilection for aches and pains. But it's mostly populated by good people, albeit mad people, and the work can be fun and interesting.
I reserve the right to change my mind. It's called learning.
