An ethnozooligist :ton: It's going to be really hard to get into though... job-wise

I was thinking hmmmm archaelogy... i Love it
but i also love animals so its been so tough, teachers asking about it, parents , etc...

so at the moment im doing a project called 'animals of significance and myth in ancient cultures' for an extended project in school, and i googled mayan animals and came up with this profession.

It's the study of animals in ancient cultures :ton:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnozoology

I've applied as a volenteer for a dig in vindolanda also :ton:
an ancient roman site in my area :)

:jmp:

Any tips on how i can get this profession?

Wow, getting onto a dig will be a great experience!

I hadn't heard of ethnozoology or ethnobotany before, but the interaction between humans and animals throughout history sounds like a fascinating area of study. :tmb:

I'm guessing you would have to do zoology and archaeology?

Volunteer work sounds good, maybe finding out if you could help out at your local zoo?:)

Basically any volunteer work is good, it shows you are interested and committed in finding work without the aspect of pay.

It looks like your heading in the right direction though, keep at it!:tmb:

thanks, and i could swing into zoology or archaeology if i fancied a change i guess :)

:ton:

@lararoxs - yeah that sounds about right - unless i got a degree in zoology and got physical experience in archaeolgical digs? im in the right area for it :)

Same here. =/ I've had people asking what I "wanted to be" since I was 15, and I still have to tell them I don't know. :p

Ugh, same here - and shes a talker and a half. On one end Ive got the MIL "When you going to figure out what you want to be?" "How long youve not been working?" "I go to work EVERYDAY at the post office, its torture." Then on my other ear Ive got my mom "Laney, just go be a nurse" "Laney, you should do a nursing program" "Laney, nurse nurse nurse nurse school work death." *facepalm times 20*
