>archaeology is not exactly a necessary job.
In the UK it's legal requirement as part of the construction process, we have nothing to do with university excavations (though some universities do own commercial archaeology companies). We conduct various pieces of work for clients of all sectors, usually starting with a desk based assessment and recommendations on how to mitigate damage to heritage that would be caused by their project. That can then go onto trenching which is an evaluation to detetmine if archaeological remains are present, and then if necessary a full excavation before construction begins.

For example, pic related was a medieval cellar we excavated under an old brick yard which was being turned into student accommodation
