Archaeologists looking for work:
Hi, we (Sarah and Lou) are two qualified archaeologists coming over from Australia. We are looking for a new challenge and to gain some experience in New Zealand field archaeology from the 10th of January for roughly two months.
As we are both Australian residents we do not need working visas. We both have manual driver’s licences, off road driving experience and NZ Worksafe’s Site Safe work permits. Skills include: excavating, drawings of excavated sections and features, running a post excavation lab, stone tool analysis and cataloguing finds.

Louise McMahon is originally from Northern Ireland but is now an Australia resident. She has 7 years of archaeological experience in Australia and the UK including excavations of European and pre-European sites.
Sarah is from Australia and has been a consulting archaeologist for the last 6 years. She has experience in recording and excavating European and pre-European sites.

If you need any field archaeologist in the near future we would love to hear from you. CVs provided at request. sarah_keiller@hotmail.com
