Q: Does anyone know where an archaeologist is needed, or how to apply to museums?

I am a archaeologist looking to extend my 3 month tourist visa. I would like to work in a museum or as an archaeologist.

Find a university that have research arms into ancient history in China. Chinese university you will have little to no chance of being picked up. Best to try back home.

You guys don't get it. "Medieval archeologist", you're in the wrong part of the world buddy.

The Chinese Academy of Science funds foreign post-docs, around 10000 RMB/months for one year. This fund is not that hard to get but you will need to find a Chinese lab to sponsor your application

I've been funded one year this way, it went without a itch. You don't have to do any teaching, just pure research.

Unfortunatley you have already been beaten by Indiana Jones who traded the remains of Nurhachi, First Emperor of Manchu Dynasty with some guys.

YOU need an ancient map!  If you could find one that shows all of the world used to be part of China you'll be hailed as a hero, and will have more women and dirty money than you could use in a lifetime.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
