This site defines what Contemporary Archaeology is very well: “People’s definitions vary, but for me this is a period of study that deals literally with the contemporary past, the world we have experienced and shaped through our daily lives and practices” (University of York Department of Archaeology). Contemporary Archaeology would probably be easier to find jobs in because an Archaeologist in this field could work for companies. They would study a culture, the people, and then see what people use the most; they would then report back to the business they work for using that to create a product that meet the peoples demands.
