Description

Tired of the airbrushed images of archaeologists in TV documentaries? Want the dirt on what REALLY happens on a dig? Paul Bahn has collected dozens of fun tales from the trenches to illuminate what actually occurs when archaeologists go into the field. He reveals startling episodes with dangerous situations, other dangerous archaeologists (sometimes unclothed), dangerous animals large and small, and cans of beer large and small. The stories that don┬┐t appear in the official reports have made their way into this small, humorous volume. Includes cartoons by noted illustrator Bill Tidy.
