There are a LOT of fieldwork opportunities in the Czech Rep.: too much work
and not enough archaeologists. Expenses are pretty minimal - heck, the
average *monthly* wage here is only about US$ 300, and a beer costs around
30c. Local travel you'll usually get paid, and accommodation (assuming
you're not too fussy).
If you (or anyone else) has some field experience already - anywhere, any
period - and can get the airfare, write to me off-list with a quick resume
and I'll see what I can do. Be aware, though, that because most things are
"rescue" archaeology, it is not always possible to say exactly what will be
excavated and where - but I can try!
(FWIW, I spent summer vacations on digs in this country three years running
while I was still an undergrad.)
