Chris Webster's handy, informative guide outlines what it takes to become an archaeological technician, a field worker in cultural resource management (CRM) archaeology.

Based on his popular blog feature, Shovelbums Guide, Webster offers young archaeologists useful advice about CRM work, including writing, cooking in hotel rooms, hand-mapping, surviving unemployment, life after archaeology, and more.

It provides tools new CRM archaeologists need to get hired and to live life on the road in a fluctuating job market, as well as details on how to succeed as a field archaeologist.

Appendices cover sample job hunting documents and checklists for fieldwork.

If you will be pursuing a position in this dynamic, challenging field, this book is a must-read both before you apply for that first job and once you get one.
