Hi

History is a recognized professional career and is among the top career choices made by students in India. Archeology is a great area for students who have interest in history. Historians , curators, educationist etc are other options.

You can take up Bachelor's degree in history or archaeology and at PG level opt for Master's course in archaeology.

Archaeology is the science of studying human cultures through the recovery, analysis and documentation of material remains and environmental data, like architecture, artifacts, features, landscapes and bio-facts.

 Personal traits needed: Archaeologists need to be of a tenacious personality. They need to be patient enough to work very slowly and carefully at the excavation sites. Sometimes, entire buildings are cleaned with small brushes. Therefore, it can take years on one project. Archaeologists need to have that tenacity to stay focused on a project in spite of its length.

University of baroda, University of Gorakhpur, Banaras Hindu University, Patna University, Punjab university offers undergraduate courses in archaeology.

All the best
