I am the biggest fan when it comes to Archeology.  I love history and I love the fact that people can go around digging it up and get paid to do it. 
I find it fasinating that a small piece can tell a story of the history of our world.  It was not until Art History class that I found how how much Archeology is in everything, from digging up artifacts to paintings done hundreds or even thousands of years ago, to Architectural buildings.  I have a friend that is an Archeologist and he is one of my biggest insirational people.  He loves what he does and doesn't let anyone stop him.
