I am not an archaeologist, nor do I play one on t.v. I did however go out into the field with my husband, who is an archaeologist. This is not nearly as romantic as it sounds, because archaeology is all about dirt.
I spent two days breaking dirt clods with a trowel and dodging clouds of dust, all in the 90 degree plus sun.
We found about twenty artifacts. What are artifacts?
Rocks. Yep, rocks.
