I think I might have missed out on the AMA but I'm going to try anyway...

I studied anthropology in school with my ultimate goal of wanting to become an archeologist. A semester before I graduated I became pregnant and felt like I should look for other career choices. I still LOVE reading all things archeology and would love to get back in the game but am afraid of looking like I know nothing.

So I guess my question is, how much knowledge is expected of you if you volunteer at a site? I feel like I know so little compared to people who are active in the field and I'm intimidated to put myself out there.

Also, how much schooling is normally needed to make a career out of archeology?

Thank you so much for a wonderful AMA. I really enjoyed how I could feel the excitement coming off of your answers. Happy digging!
