A while ago, I found out that there is something called “Day of Archaeology”.
For one day, archaeologists all over the world document their work on that particular day and put it online. This year I would like to see what colleagues all over the world are doing on this day and I would like to see a lot of details and different work environments and that´s what I would like to contribute as well. Mainly because in the last years my archaeological work has been intensily confined by family and economic obligations, an aspect seldom mentioned in archaeology. Well economy and working conditions are always a topic, but I have found very little articles, blogs etc. that talk and write on the problems of having a family and still getting on with archaeological work. Nevertheless I love my work and get on with it as well as I can!
So, on July 11th I will record what I am doing and post it online and I am really looking forward to see what archaeologists from different countries and settings will contribute as well!

Oh, and if you are interested in Archaeology & motherhood, there has been an interesting article lately on “archmamas“: http://campusarch.msu.edu/?p=2849
