Hello hardeep,
Archeology is a rewarding career today. It has a good scope.

**The pay scale for an Archeologist depends on their education, level of skill and who they work for. Since the nature of job prospects is very diverse, the salary can vary tremendously. The basic pay scale of an Assistant Archaeologist employed with the Archaeological Survey of India is
between Rs. 9,000 and Rs. 15,000 including other allowances. The promotion is based upon the performance. The salary scale of the Director General varies between Rs.25,000 and 30,000. The minimum pay scale of Archaeologists working in colleges and universities
is around 16,000 to 20,000/- per month. A doctoral degree in this field entitles one to reach higher pay scale and it is a must for a rise in this career.

The initial pay scale in private firms can be much higher when compared to the government sector. The remuneration with time and experience expands to the advantage of Archaeologists.

Archaeology is a career for those who have an acute interest and training in culture and history. It is preferable for candidates to have a background of ancient history and culture. The basic eligibility criteria for Bachelor course in History/ Archaeology (i.e B.A level) of three-year duration, is 10+2 or equivalent. After graduation one can opt for a Post graduate Diploma or Degree course in Archaeology.
