Things I Wish I Had Known About Archaeology
#11
If you are truely inspired by what you do, what you learn on a daily basis on human behaviour past or present, and they do feed into each other, then stick with it. You may never be rich in monetary terms, but, you will be rich in knowledge and that in itself is, as far as I am concerned, all you can hope for in this life! Learn, disseminate, inspire, encourage and teach always acknowledging that you have only one view among many. Isn't that at the end of the day when youv'e done your back, reduced your body temperature to dangerously low levels, endured weather conditions that everyone else has avoided what makes it worthwhile? That wee bit of pot sherd that sorts out the date of the site, the sence of beloning to a team of like minded individuals who share in all the pain and interest. We may well be thought of as a bunch of irrelevant (I think the term currently used is 'bunny huggers'), however I think the knowledge we have accrued is beoming increasingly relevant in a rapidly changing world. It is not easy, but it is worth it. Unfortunately we don't shout hard enough about the benefits of what we do. Right sorry for the rant(ish) off to the dark room and the medicine (we have to make it better, not sure how, but, got a bloody good idea it has to be fully expressed in tourist ?'s and local worth which obviously ties back into the tourist ?.

There needs to be an industry focused independence to the development of opportunities.

This is most apparent in how organisations provide the opportnities to develop ones career.

It is ironic then that the nature of this serves the commercial 'cutting teeth' end of the sector as opposed to the development of broader career sets outside of comercial norms.

admittedly, if this had been a provision earlier, the only people who were in the profession after a recession would be the stoutworts and it would be rather messy for the love of it.

Could you elucidate your multitudinous liminal strands into a clearer cogent paradigm? The opacity of your lingual gymnastics mask the causal influences.
