Obviously, this response is based on my personal experience… I felt it.
How do you know that a career in archaeology is really for you?
You know it, you feel it… Archaeology makes you happy, you love what you are doing and you find it stimulating. It is as simple as that. If you have doubts, you are unhappy or people tell you that you do not seem to enjoy your studies or your job… you may have chosen not so wisely.
