From:     Gary Binyamin
My sister is a 13 year old student in a suburb of Illinois.  She is very 
interested in the field of archeology and is doing a report on the 
profession.  I have written this letter on her behalf to request a little 
information from a person who is intimate with the field.
She has composed the following six questions:

1.  What is your day to day routine?

2.  What is it like in archeological field school?

3.  What types of courses did you take in college?

4.  How often are excavation jobs available?

5.  How often do you travel?

6.  What other information would you suggest she should look at as someone 
looking at the field of archeology?

Where can she look for other sources of information.  (she does has access 
to a web browser, but not a mail account).  She appreciates you taking the 
time to reply to this message. Thank you
