Have you ever wondered what archaeologists really get up to? Is it all just digging or is there a lot more to it? The Day of Archaeology 2012 aims to give a window into the daily lives of archaeologists.

The Day of Archaeology 2011 was written by over 400 contributors, and it chronicled what they did on one day, July 29th 2011, from those in the field through to specialists working in laboratories and behind computers.
