1. (What archaeology should be) You've started your archaeology course. It's the first day, you have your hat, whip and designer stuble and are ready to go and kick ass. Everything is exciting, there are always nazi scum to shoot, imprisoned children to free and artefact s to "rescue". If you are an archaeologist you can also get laid easily.

2. What archaeology is :( . You're there, on your uni course, let's say in Exeter for example. Pen in hand. Peering around the lecture theatre at various other odd looking characters that look like they should never have been allowed to leave wales , sommerset or whatever random back country they escaped from. There's hours of looking at dendrochronology, pollen diagrams, and geophysical bull shit. (That's not the good kind of pollen either :( ) Archaeology causes insanity, a strong accent and excitement over broken ceramics .

Avoid at all costs. Unless you are already displaying archaeology symptoms, then you may well enjoy.
*queue theme music* Look at him killing all those nazi's! He must have done archaeology!
