Why I Became an Archaeologist
“Like many other archaeologists, I became interested in archaeology because of ancient Egypt and mummies. When I was 14, my high school French class took a trip to England and France. Of course, we visited many of the great museums in both countries, but my favorite was the Louvre. There were numerous rooms of Egyptian artifacts, sarcophagi, and mummies. It gave me chills to be in the same room with people who lived thousands of years ago. I decided right then that I would become an archaeologist.”
