Yo también pienso muchas veces eso pero la verdad es que prefiero ser
arqueóloga y ganar poco o nada que ser una empresaria amargada. Además, el
estar trabajando como arqueóloga y que me paguen una cantidad digna para mi
ya es un dato a tener en cuenta aunque no iguale el sueldo de mi pareja. Y
digo que es un dato a tener en cuenta si consideramos que actualmente el
paro es muy elevado entre nosotros ya que se suele contratar a estudiantes a
los que no se les paga ya que hacen prácticas. Así, nosotros los licenciados
nos las vemos y deseamos para que nos contraten, y si encima eres
licenciada, estás casada y eres madre, ya ni te cuento. >From: Alberto Ocaña

>How much do archaeologists earn?
>This survey was published in Current Archaeology 166
>How much do archaeologists earn?
>A new estimate has just been provided in a survey of
>archaeological jobs in the UK entitled Profiling the
>Profession funded by English Heritage and published
>jointly by them, the Council for British Archaeology
>and the Institute of Field Archaeologists: it is
>available for download on the web at www.
>The first question is: how many professional
>archaeologists are there? Or rather, how many people
>are there employed by organisations in the UK that
>employ professional archaeologists (the survey was of
>organisations, not individuals)? The result is 4425
>professional archaeologists. The returned
>questionnaires, in fact, only contain information
>about 2829 people, but the figures were then grossed
>up, to allow for organisations that failed to respond.
>And how much are they paid? The average is £17,079, as
>compared to the national average of £19,167. The
>median figure is even worse - only £15,905 -
>archaeologists are badly paid.
>There are some obvious problems. The quoted averages
>are probably too high since the lump of temporary
>workers is probably not included; similarly only 5%
>are part-time workers - surely too low. A quick
>adjustment of the figures in the English Heritage
>annual report suggests that perhaps a third of their
>workers are part time.
>Your pay however depends on where you work. The
>majority of archaeologists are employed in the private
>sector as contractors, 30%, or consultants, only 3%
>(an underestimate?) Then three further categories
>employ around 15% each: the curators in local
>government, academic archaeologists, and those working
>in the National Heritage Agencies, including the Royal
>Commissions. 4% are employed by National Museums but
>only another 4% by local authorities, presumably in
>Museums, again surely an underestimate.
>The two places to work however are Universities, and
>English Heritage and its brethren. The average salary
>for an academic in permanent employment is £25,310;
>next come the National Heritage agencies on £23,081
>and the National Museums on £22,570. We then come down
>with a bump: curators average £17,000, contractors
>£16,600, and consultants only £14,500. (These figures
>are for permanent posts - temporary staff are
>considerably lower). The average age of an
>archaeologist is 36, 40% of the total being between 30
>- 39. It appears that 35% are female, but whilst women
>comprise 42% of all archaeologists between 20 - 29, by
>the time the 40 - 49 age bracket is reached, women are
>only 29% of the total.
>Nearly half the book is taken up with ‘Post Profiles’,
>and it is these that most archaeologists will study
>most keenly. Archaeologists describe themselves in a
>myriad of different ways: 455 separate post titles
>were recorded - nearly one title for every 5
>archaeologists, but these were boiled down into 34
>‘Post Profiles’. We immediately turned to the profile
>of ‘editor’ of whom there are 26, ¾ of them female:
>the average salary is £17,764, though one editor in
>the Eastern region, earned £28,000 bumping the average
>up. The highest paid British archaeologist is an
>‘Inspector’ who earned £58,086, though there was an
>academic who earned £50,809. (By comparison the Chief
>Executive of English Heritage earned £100,00, made up
>of £87,000 basic and £13,00 performance bonus).
>The heart of the PPG 16 system are the project
>managers, the post to which every ambitious
>archaeologist should aspire. They are the ones who
>have the delightful job of negotiating with planning
>officers on behalf of developers; they are 79% male
>and earn on average £19,434. At the other extreme, the
>finds assistants, who really do the important (and
>often actually archaeological) work, are 73% female
>and earn on average £14,996. Directors (75% male) earn
>£22,629, conservators, (often highly qualified, 68%
>female), average £16,379, computing officers (64%
>male) average £15,918, though considering that
>computing officers are like gold in today’s society,
>it is not perhaps surprising that at this salary,
>there are only 12 of them in archaeology.
>It is interesting to compare this with a similar
>American survey: The American Archaeologist which we
>summarised in CA159. The two are not strictly
>comparable in that the American profile was simply
>based on a single American organisation, the Society
>for American Archaeology, which has around 5000
>members of whom a similar number, nearly 1700
>completed a census in 1994; however one cannot tell
>what proportion of American archaeologists are
>represented as a whole. The British data is much
>easier to handle in that it is quoted in tables and
>hard figures and firm averages, whereas the American
>data is mostly quoted in graphs and is very woolly.
>However the Americans asked some additional questions
>notably on educational levels, on job satisfaction and
>fascinatingly, though perhaps irrelevantly, on marital
>status. American archaeologists are inevitably rather
>better paid: no overall average is quoted; perhaps the
>most tangible figure is that 61% of male
>archaeologists earn over $40,000(= £25,000). The
>interesting difference is that, whereas in Britain
>academic archaeologists are well ahead of the
>contractors, in America, what they call ‘private
>sector’ archaeologists have salaries that are at least
>equal to, and in places edging ahead of, academic
>archaeologists and are also well ahead in job
>satisfaction. Will British contractors now begin to
>catch up with their academic counterparts?
