Check out “The Path to Becoming an Archaeologist,” a brochure published by the Society for American Archaeology (SAA). In addition to providing useful information about the steps you can take to become an archaeologist, the brochure offers numerous possible opportunities to gain archaeological experience. Included among the listed resources are internships, field schools, and volunteer opportunities.
Below, you’ll find a list of institutions that offer internships. You can also apply directly to your state or local government for positions through usajobs.gov.
