Seeking Field Technician Position (willing to travel)


Recent MA graduate seeking work as a field technician. My transition into archaeology occurred rather late in my academic career. Consequently, I have yet to complete an archaeological field school. I am willing to volunteer for two to three months given my limited experience in the field.
