Chuck Said
I always co-direct the projects with my wife Elsa Redmond, who is also an archaeologist. She and I have been working together since we were in college.

We usually take four or five graduate students with us to work as excavation team supervisors, and then we hire about 30 workmen who live in the nearby village to do a lot of the actual excavation. Of course, we don't begin working at a site until we've gotten permission from the government, the state, and the town where we want to excavate.
