Like a lot of other jobs and occupations, television has made the work of an archeologist look far posher than it actually is. Most archeologists can only dream of playing Indiana Jones and going overseas to a remote, ancient dig site. They’ll probably never get to hold any dinosaur bones, either.
Archeologists will come out to your house and make sure there’s no historical significance to your yard before you put in an underground pool, though. If they find anything awesome, they’ll study it before you can complete the project. It’s as close to the Temple of Doom they’ll ever get.
