Join a Dig!!!

Those who say you can't travel backward through time never worked at an archaeological dig.

As a team member, if you work hard enough you are often the lucky one who find the artifacts. Team members come from all walks of life: some are students, some are retirees, some are on a religious pilgrimage, some are motivated by the thrill of discovery.

If you've ever wanted to hold an ancient object in your hand or, simply learn the best way to handle a pickax you've come to the right place.
