What is an Armchair Archaeologist?

Well, if you are reading this then maybe you are one at heart.  An armchair archaeologist is the person who has never been on a dig or maybe only as an amateur, but likes to keep abreast on the trends in the field and discoveries of the day.  Maybe they have fiscal, physical or limitations that keep them from fulfilling a life goal of being in the field or maybe they are happy observing from the sidelines.  In any event, it is one of many of us filled with knowledge and thirsting for knowledge who are not traditional academics or archaeologist.  We search the web, purchase magazines and watch news stories pertaining to the past and our exploration and explanation of it.  If you are one of these people, I hope share this site and my experiences with you and hope will benefit from my knowledge!
