Personal Blogs about Archaeology

Blogs are often personal diaries; and many archaeologists and students in archaeology are beginning to write of their experiences on the web. The personal blog about archaeology is an excellent resource for people who are interested in getting into the field, or just finding out a little more information about how archaeology works.
