Not a paleontologist? Not a problem.
No experience necessary! You will be training and working

Ancient Odysseys believes in the importance of excavations for the sake of study and research. Fossils are part of our natural and cultural heritage and belong to everyone. All Ancient Odysseys digs (including archaeology digs) are conducted for the benefit of science and each dig site is associated with a museum or repository so that the fossils can be studied and exhibited for all to enjoy. That means that any and all materials you help excavate
will not be sold for personal gain.
