Advice on bringing my field skills up to date?
#1
It's been forever since I was on here, but hopefully you kind people can point me in the right direction.

After my so-called academic career proved to be a flop, I more or less gave up on archaeology. It's been ages since I worked on an excavation (2006) barring a couple of days spent as a volunteer. Most of my field experience is from survey-only projects in the USA and I studied rock art in my research (the recording of which required little more than a good pencil and a camera) so I never had that much excavation experience to begin with.

I'd like to get back into contract work but I am not at all confident that I know what I am doing, especially when it comes to paperwork! Can anyone recommend some good resources for getting up to date on field methods? Perhaps a good field guide or undergraduate textbook?
