On top of that, some people need more exertion than it takes to dial for room service.
Keally There are aboutarchaeological sites in Japan, oraccording to a recent report. Consequently, Japan conducts about 8, contract emergency or rescue excavation projects each year down from almost 13, in Although I have never seen a clear statement of what exactly is included in this figure, the projects apparently range from a few people excavating for a few weeks, up to people excavating 1,s of cubic meters of dirt during the year, on projects scheduled to run for several years to a decade or more.
And these excavations produce 2, or more excavation reports each year. This work is done by over 7, specialists and 20, to 50, fieldworkers. These contract projects have fiscal and moral responsibilities to the sponsor who is ultimately the taxpayer and consumerand they therefore effectively cannot take on inexperienced people for short-term work.
If the project is going to invest time and money training someone, they want to keep that person for a long time.
A few contract projects sponsored by poorer municipalities or companies will take on inexperienced people short-term as dirt movers, but the "archaeology" will have to be done on your own time.
There are also about research excavation projects in Japan each year. I think most of these are run by universities, or museums or independent research groups, but some are run by various municipalities.
Most of these seem to be short-term projects, usually run in the summer.
Many will take students. Most of these probably do not pay wages, and most very likely will require participants to provide their own room, board and transportation, and to be freely conversant in Japanese. A few, at least, require participants to pay.
There are very few excavation projects that can take people who do not speak Japanese. English is okay on some of these few I know individual archaeologists who speak German or French, and there probably are a few who can handle Chinese, Korean or Russian. Very, very few projects -- either contract or research -- will take people who cannot work 9 a.
Effectively no excavation project will take someone who wants to work only half days. And it is rare for a project to accept people who want to work only 2 or 3 days a week.
For all practical purposes, to get into Japanese archaeological fieldwork as anything but an observer, a person must be prepared to work full-time for several months at a minimum. It is illegal to work in Japan on a tourist visa.
A resident visa, or a work or student visa with permission to accept wages for a specific job, is required. It should also be possible to get a research visa with permission to work for a few months on archaeological excavation projects directed by Japanese, simply because Japanese archaeology accepts few if any volunteers.
The Japanese fiscal year runs from April 1 to March 31, and excavation projects have to run in sync with this and with the weather. The planned end for these projects can be anywhere from 2 years later to 15 years later.
It can be hard to get on an excavation project after it begins, but there are notable exceptions to this. Also, a lot of projects in recent years do not hire directly, but rather acquire an excavation team through a company.
