Archaeologists go everywhere. They spend time in labs, usually at universities, and in the field digging, traveling to conferences to present their work, and many of them teach, also. Where they go depends in the specialty and interest they choose. It is a good job if you like exploring and traveling. You will need to eventually get a masters or doctorate degree to have the most opportunities.

Hi Keyhan. Dr. Wilkes' answer is spot on. I think it's great to have an interest in archaeology. At 12 or 13 years of age, it's hard to conceptualize the cost of pursuing this profession *and* whether it will provide enough income for other interests--e.g. having children one day, buying a home, saving for retirement. I think it's very important to pursue your passions, but I also think you should consider your career in context of both financial provision and happiness. I often told my daughter as she was growing up, "you can pursue interests that aren't financially as rewarding as hobbies." There likely are many different careers that are related to archaeology that have good income potential and won't cost you a fortune to get into. Lastly, if you're financially independent already, then you're good to go! :) Best wishes for great success!
