We Don’t Dig Dinosaurs!

“New book paints compelling portrait of archaeology” PRWeb.

“Wonderful insight into what archaeologists actually do. Well worth it!” Paul, Amazon.

“Really enjoyed reading this.” Debra, Amazon.

There is a wide held misconception that archaeologists dig up dinosaurs – we don’t, we leave that to the palaeontologists. Archaeology is  the study of the human past and there is an approximate gap of 64 million years between the extinction of the dinosaurs and human evolution.

This book holds insights into what archaeologists really do in their work life, and why they chose archaeology as a career.Stories ranging from animals, the environment, sacrifice, human remains, community involvement and even fantasy related archaeology, this book is an insight into the many aspects of life in the interesting and diverse career of archaeology.

Whether you are a student looking at studying archaeology, an armchair critic, someone who finds the subject interesting, or think that archaeology involves just three days of ‘digging’, this book will open up a whole new world of what is involved in the eclectic career of an archaeologist.

  1. Great read… especially for people who don’t have much of an idea regarding what is involved in the daily workload… and would like to think that you archaeologists just dig bones (you must come across ones that look like dinosaur bones)!

  2. ‘We Don’t Dig Dinosaurs’ by Sue Carter.

    My remarks are confined to divining/dowsing, an area in which I have some competency over the last twenty years. The author covers this topic on pages 159-167. She is quite correct in stating that dowsing is not a scientific technique for archaeological work. However there are more ways of arriving at the truth than by ‘scientific’ means; ( map-reading, excavation, geophysical readings etc.)
    However for amateurs; dowsing, consulting old maps & records are an inexpensive means of pursuing an engaging hobby on a limited budget.
    It is normal practice to cite other authors in support of ones own case and to give a list of these authors/publications for each chapter. This author does the opposite; authors listed (including myself) are dismissed out of hand as not worthy of consideration. Quite a biased approach and very un- professional.
