Abstract

For 20 years, archaeologists in the UK have used job advertisements to track wage growth for professional archaeologists. This paper applies their methodology to cultural resource management archaeologists’ positions in the United States. The results show that wages have kept pace with inflation and confirmed the phenomenon of higher wages for archaeologists working in the western half of the country. The use of job advertisement datasets is shown to be an accurate technique in representing the wages of many archaeology positions.
