How Much Do Archaeologists Earn?


The very first question would be: how many specialist archaeologists are there? Or how many men and women are there used by associations from the UK that use specialist archaeologists?

There are a number of obvious issues. The quoted averages are most likely too high because the bulge of temporary employees is likely not included; likewise just part-time employees — definitely too low. A fast modification of the characters from the English Heritage yearly report indicates that maybe a third of the employees are part time.

If someone who doesn’t earn much like an archaeologist, then you’ll be needing an income support. An income support is an income-related benefit for some people who have less income. Reach income support contact number for more details.

Your cover nevertheless depends upon where you operate. Nearly all archaeologists are used in the private industry as contractors, or consultants.

Then three additional classes employ each: the curators in local authorities, academic archaeologists, and people working from the National Heritage Agencies, such as the Royal Commissions.

Almost half the book is taken up with’Post Profiles’, and it’s these that many archaeologists will examine most keenly. Archaeologists explain themselves in an assortment of different ways: different post names were listed — almost 1 name for each and every archaeologist, but those were thrown down to’Post Profiles’. We immediately turned into the profile of’editor’ of whom you will find females. The best paid British archaeologist is the’Inspector’.

It’s interesting to compare this with a comparable American poll: The American Archaeologist that we outlined in CA159. Both aren’t strictly comparable in the American profile has been only based on a single American association, the Society for American Archaeology, which has approximately 5000 members of whom an identical amount; nonetheless one cannot tell exactly what percentage of American archaeologists are represented as a complete.

The British information is significantly simpler to manage in it is quoted in pubs and challenging figures and company averages, whereas the American information is largely quoted in charts and is quite woolly.

Nevertheless the Americans requested some additional questions especially on educational degrees, on job satisfaction and fascinatingly, although possibly irrelevantly, on marital status. American archaeologists are necessarily rather better compensated: no total average is quoted; maybe the most concrete figure is that male archaeologists bring in more.
