Archaeology Pay (2012 edition)


It is that time of year again, pay in US archaeology. I have run all the numbers and will be putting up the posts over the next couple of days for the different positions. To start out with Field/lab techs-

good news- average pay is over $14 an hour
bad news- it's an average so most techs make under $14.

Next, Crew Chief-

Now, Middle management-

Senior positions-
