MEDIA REVIEWS
'Anyone considering a career in the discipline should read this - unlike most books on archaeology, it will tell you the future.' Current Archaeology
'Flatman is well placed to write such a book, as he can draw on his experience in field archaeology and currently holds positions as both an academic and a local government archaeologist. His accounts are a combination of thorough documentation, good summaries, experience and common sense, and include useful devices, such as interviews with practitioners in the different fields, 'pros and cons' tables, [and] sketches of a 'day in the life' of a particular professional ... All in all, this is a book I would recommend to anyone contemplating a career in archaeology, career advisors and those teaching introductory archaeology courses.' Madeleine Hummler, Antiquity
"Anyone considering a career in the discipline should read this - unlike most books on archaeology, it will tell you the future." -Current Archaeology
"In this very readable and comprehensive guide, he passes on his understanding of what being an archaeologist today is about. It will be useful not only to would-be archaeologists, but also to paid up aficionados who might wonder what others in their profession get up to and worry about..." - British Archaeology
"All in all, this is a book I would recommend to anyone contemplating a career in archaeology, career advisors and those teaching introductory archaeology courses." --Antiquity
