What Do You REALLY Want to Do?

The BBC recently paid a visit to the Chester Amphitheatre Project to record footage for a new television series called What Do You Really Want to Do. This series will feature the countries Top Ten Dream Jobs. David Vaughan - one of our Chester Amphitheatre Project team - was selected to take part having made a major personal life change by giving up a lucrative career in Marketing to pursue a career in archaeology. David has just gained a 1st Class Degree in Archaeology from the University of Birmingham! Do you want to know where archaeology came in this top ten? Well, were not telling you, but it did appear pretty high on the list :o) Keep a look out for the programme which will be broadcast in early September 2006.

I'm sitting at a computer banging my head against a wall of words, but still there's nothing I'd rather be than an archaeologist. But there's not many people who would put up with the cold, the wet, the hard labour, the low pay and the insecure jobs. Archaeology is a great way of life but its no career.

Someone who's just got a First surely isn't going to settle for being a humble mattocker and troweller! Local Authority archaeological officer, lecturer, writer - all with nice digs in the summer months....

It's not just about mattocking and trowelling - archaeology is a passion. Well done David on the First Class. Good luck to you!!

Bizarrely, it's the digging, mattocking, trowelliing and recording against the elements and the odds that I really enjoy. Give me that over lecturing or sitting in an office any day. All parts of archaeology are important in their own way. Each to their own.
