Welcome to R. Joe's

Your Adventure in Archaeology Starts Here!

ShovelBums is the worlds largest provider of Archaeology, Academic, and Cultural Resource Management (CRM) related jobs. Since 1999 ShovelBums has filled over 36,000 positions in academia, archaeology and CRM.

If you are looking to start a career in archaeology or CRM it begins, and ends, here. This is where your peers and mentors all started (except the really old ones that I worked with back in the day when we only heard about jobs by word of mouth, fax machines, and printed letters). 

To join the ShovelBums mailing list please Follow this link and there are instructions on how to join. It only takes a couple of minutes and it is mostly painless.

ShovelBums is home to the Comprehensive International Guide to Archaeology, Anthropology and CRM Field Schools. (2017 Edition coming online soon!)

You can follow ShovelBums on Twitter

Or you can follow the ShovelBums facebook group

You are also welcome to send a friend request at (This is my personal page is more for keeping in touch with many of you than for posting jobs).


First you need to be a member of the ShovelBums mailing list. To join the ShovelBums mailing list please Follow this link and there are simple instructions on how to join. It only takes a couple of minutes and it is mostly painless. The mailing list is only for jobs so you will not be flooded with email. I strongly recommend you use a work email to join. 

After you are a member of the ShovelBums mailing list you can then send a message to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. *from* the account you registered.  Every announcement is screened to be sure it has all of the relevant information present (see below). The message will then be approved right away and it will immediately be sent out to the 18,0000 members of ShovelBums. 

The great thing? If one of the members of ShovelBums is not the right fit for the position, it is likely they know someone who is! And with ~18,000 members your ad has an amazing, and instant, reach. The only people on ShovelBums are people looking for work, students trying to find out what the job market is like, and academics helping to prepare students for a future in Archaeology/Anthropology and CRM.

You can read more about the how and why you should be using ShovelBums for your academic or CRM position announcements here (Hint: its cheap, fast, and huge!)

Well if you are slacker you can view the current jobs here (note that link brings you off site. My mailing list host changed settings and messed up my ability to have those posted here, I am working on a fix).

BUT! You really should join the ShovelBums mailing list to be notified immediately by email when a job comes out. Besides the immediacy of email, the emails you receive have full contact information in them, when the job postings that are archived online they have their email addresses obfuscated for security. So show your future employer you are smart and join the email list, it is relatively low volume and you can choose a digest mode. But it really is the smart way to keep current on jobs. 

You can also follow ShovelBums on Twitter

Or you can follow the ShovelBums facebook group

First: Get a chicken.

Second: Follow this link and there are instructions on how to join. It only takes a couple of minutes and it is mostly painless.

Third: Get rid of the chicken.

My mom, who find herself quite clever, came up with the term in the 80's when I was describing to her what it was like being on the road doing "contract" archaeology back in the day. The term "can" be pejorative if used by someone who is not an archaeologist, a pompous professor who fails to realize that the majority of their students who end up pursuing a career *will* will end up as a ShovelBum doing CRM at some point, or a State or Fed employee who is secretly jealous of your capricious career. However, within the field of professionals, ShovelBums is a term used to signify that mutual understanding between professionals acknowledging that one knows what it is like to live on the road having to do the highest quality work, in the least amount of time, under arduous conditions. You can read more about the origin of the term ShovelBums here.

Errata ShovelBums in undergoing some intermittent upgrades. Sorry if you run into any glitches. If you do. Feel free to drop me a not using the contact form (it is located in the left hand column at the bottom).

Short answer: Yes

If you want to be an Archaeologist there is one thing that is required no matter where you go. You have to have a field school.

A field school will not only open your mind first hand to the wonders of archaeology and other cultures but it will also lay the ground work for building relationships that will span your whole career. Some of the people you meet during field school will become friends who you will still be socializing with 40 years from now. But always remember this, Archaeology and anthropology are incredibly small fields and everyone you interact with today will somehow affect your career tomorrow. So do not be a jerk at field school, do not go in believing you are the best thing to hit anthropology since Margret Mead. Go with an open mind, go as an anthropologist and observe, learn, and assimilate.

So go browse ShovelBum's Comprehensive International Guide to Archaeology, Anthropology and CRM Field Schools and find a great field school. I guarantee you will have the best experience of your life! You have this one rare opportunity in your life, and your new career, to hand pick which one of some of the most interesting sites that are currently active anywhere in the world, that you want to work on. And even if you don't plan on becoming a professional archaeologist? A field school will change you, in a positive way, forever.

Trust me (I am a scientist!) when I tell you this opportunity is golden.  Go for it.

~R. Joe

That would be awesome! The deal always was that when you do find a job or field school through ShovelBums and we cross paths (and you had some extra per-diem cash in your pocket) I would love for you to buy me a beer and tell me about your career. More often than not I ended up buying a few rounds too. Not really a very efficient business model, but it is more fun. Unfortunately the truth is I rarely get to cross paths with people ShovelBums has helped so I set up this link where you can virtually buy me a beer if you like and I will drink it in real life :-) The best part? If you do support ShovelBums this way you get to have your name inscribed on The Hall Of The Chosen and receive eternal good field and lab karma - quite a bargain!

And if you are broke and can't donate? Welcome to your profession! :-) I'll buy the drinks. But no worries, I run ShovelBums solely to help you out. And I do hope ShovelBums is able to help you in a meaningful way in your career and someday we get to meet up and have a drink either virtually or in person.

Help! R. Joe I see a job but I can't see the email address!

I almost feel bad posting this tip.  Because in a way it acts as a vetting process for applicants for employers ;-)  But I hear it enough so I will share the secret :-)

How (and why) to submit your Archaeology, Anthropology or Cultural Resource Management job to ShovelBums jobs service (Hint: Because it works!) Featured

When you submit an Archaeology or Anthropology teaching position or Cultural Resource Management job to ShovelBums you reach over 15,000 professional archaeologists immediately! It is easy (well kind of), read on: Also read on for important information about the fees (below) for posting on ShovelBums.

Short Version:

What you need to do first is Join the ShovelBums mailing list. To prevent spam to the list members only members are able to post. It is important to note that the mailing list is maintained on a different website than (where you are right now). This means that when you register here, on you are not registered to send a job advertisement out. For your security I use YahooGroups to host the mailing list, trust me, this is a good thing.


Long Version:

Follow this link to sign up for YahooGroups. If you do not already have a Yahoo account you can just enter your e-mail address and become a member of the mailing list and then you are able to send out your job announcement.

After you have joined the ShovelBums mailing list you can just send your job advertisement to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

  • Keep your formatting simple, I prefer it if you use plain text, but in this day and age basic formatting is ok
  • Include as many specifics as you are able to in the subject of the message. You want people to be able to see the subject and have an idea of what the job is about.
  • Good Subject: 3 Archaeology Field Technicians, USD Inc. SW Ohio, AFT $14/hr, $35PD, Single Occ Hotel,
  • Bad Subject: I need field techs.
  • In the body of the message please include as much detail as you can.
  • If you are allowed, PLEASE include salary information!

Is ShovelBums just for, er, ShovelBums level jobs?

Nope. The name ShovelBums, which to make a long story short is what my mom tounge-in-cheek called my CRM buddies and I back in the day, refers just to the root level of a CRM career. Any archaeologist/CRMer in the modern generation who wants to have a broad experience base does a turn as a ShovelBum. There are numerous people who joined ShovelBums when it was first founded who now are Principle Investigators, owners of CRM firms, and PhD's teaching at universities.

So ShovelBums serves all levels of archaeology and CRM employment listings. Trust me, there are lots of senior level archaeologist who are members. ShovelBums is also beginning to branch out into posting academic positions, so be sure to let anyone you know is academia know.

What states does ShovelBums cover?

States? Oh you miss the point, I don't do anything small. ShovelBums covers the entire world. 15,000+ members is a LOT of archaeologists and they won't all fit in the states. The advantage of posting on ShovelBums (and having a clear subject for your add) is that with the massive audience your message will saturate the area you need people from/for. Archaeology is such a small network that is likely that a ShovelBum in the southern UK will know of a buddy from field school who lives right outside of Poughkeepsie where you need a Field Director ASAP.


What? I thought this was free?

Years ago it was. Since 2006 I have needed to charge for listings on ShovelBums (see below for an explanation).

The bottom line is if you are a commercial entity making a profit ShovelBums costs $100 per job category/Academic position advertised per location (Note: This is cheap! This is 1/4 the price of a job on and it is the only service that targets your intended audience so quickly).

For Example:

  • If you are advertising for 12 Archaeological Field Technicians, the cost would only be $100.
  • If you are advertising for 12 Archaeological Field Technicians, 2 Crew Chiefs, and a Principal Investigator, the cost would be $300.
  • If you are advertising for 12 Archaeological Field Technicians in Illinois, and 3 Archaeological Field Technicians and a crew chief for a separate project in Iowa, that would be $300.
  • "Cattle Calls" (i.e. an add that reads like "We need a bunch of field people for a lot of projects in several states this summer") will be billed on a case by case basis
  • Note: It is much better for you and the members to have a clear subject to your message detailing what positions you have available. You won't be charged anything extra for splitting your advertisement into multiple postings and it makes it easier for your intended audience to see what you want AND to share your add with their personal network.

You can post as many positions as you want in an advertisement, though I recommend breaking your advertisements into multiple e-mails if you are advertising for different classes of jobs, this does not cost you any more and makes it easier for people to see exactly which positions you have. There cost is the same as if you bundle them all in one e-mail and I feel it makes it easier for people to sort through the messages.

ShovelBums is free to access, BUT if your company is in a hard spot I will never deny you the opportunity to use ShovelBums (heck, if you aren't fielding a crew, then you don't have money coming in, so you will never be able to pay!). So the deal is that you can use ShovelBums BUT when you company is back on its feet you can pay the fees like everyone else. My philosophy is that it is more important for people to know about the jobs, you and I can settle up later. Bad business philosophy, good for the profession.

I am a nice guy, I want your company to succeed. If we work together on this, we can both survive.


If you are a government entity that prohibits using pay services you can still use ShovelBums. BUT I really encourage you to be sure that you can not pay, many entities actually have that option, they just don't advertise it well.

Why do you charge R. Joe?

ShovelBums is my job these days (besides raising three kids). ShovelBums has over 16,500 members who have joined ShovelBums at not cost. ShovelBums has no sponsoring organizations, no outside funding, nada. That means that all of the day to day operational costs and working with 16,500+ of your peers is up to me.

The bottom line is ShovelBums is a professional service. I try to keep things very casual with ShovelBums, none of us like stuffy overly regulated things, but ShovelBums is a professional service like no other service in the world: Nothing allows your advertisement for Archaeologists and related CRM professions to reach such a vast targeted audienceimmediately. Other professional recruitment services are magnitudes of order more expensive, some even taking a base fee calculated on the annual salary of *each* position filled. 100 bucks a pop is bargain! If you accounting office does not think so, just have them drop me a note and I will be glad to discuss it with them via e-mail.

Why don't you charge for academic positions?

I am trying to make ShovelBums better known in academia and give them an opportunity to find out what a massive, immediate, resource ShovelBums is.

Why should I use ShovelBums?

There are anecdotal reports that using ShovelBums will increase your personal karma, restore lean muscle, and provide you with an inner peace. But there are no guarantees on that.

What I can guarantee you is that you will get a great response to your advertisement. Just do the basic math: Your advertisement is immediately sent out to 16,500+ members. Of those 15,000 members some of them will not be the right fit for your position, but it is likely they know someone who is and who is looking for work and they will forward it on to their personal network. ShovelBums also has a good penetration into universities, so there is a reasonable chance your job will be posted and distributed within academic departments in relevant areas.

Any suggestions for other resources?

Other resources? You mean, like your competition? Hey, we are all in this together! I want you to fill your position and for you to succeed. So I am happy to promote these unaffiliated resources that you can also post your job on.

Note: If you do not already have a Yahoo ID, you will need to register for one to join the ShovelBums Jobs mailing list. I really am sorry for that hassle :-( but it all comes down to keeping you secure.  Yahoo spends millions of dollars a year keeping their security systems up to the minute, and I just can keep pace with that. On the positive side once you register with Yahoo (and they force you to have a Yahoo Mail address) you can change your default email to whatever you like.  Honestly it all only takes just a couple of minutes. They also say they require a mobile phone when you register...this is not completely true (and they do not sell or use your number) but you can also use a land line and they will just call that number instead of sending a SMS message with your access code to register. After you have set up your account you can delete the phone number from your account.

If you have any problems joining the group please let me know using the contact form on the left (at the bottom). Sometimes Yahoo will change sign up settings and I not aware of it. With your help I can keep this signup process as painless as possible.
