What type of sciences I would need to be an archaeologist?

  1. Sep 23, 2006 #1
    I'm just curious about what type of sciences I would need to be an archaeologist. I love history/english which are my strong points academically and I'm not really a fan of the sciences/maths but I am still curious what I might need.

    You might want some geology and geography skills.

    I didn't think they spent so much time in the lab as that website says. Good to know though.

    geololgy, geography, antrhopology, world history, local history (pertaining to your interests)

    not so important, and depending on your specialization:
    some biology and ecology might help too, but I don't know how far archeology overlaps social theory, political economy might be good too, as well as theology.
