Archaeology can be one of the most frustrating experiences in the game. You spend hours digging around in the ground, desperately searching for just the right relics to create cool in-game items. No guarantee exists that you'll ever get the stuff you want, but you just keep plugging away ... and away ... and digging for what feels like forever.

It's no surprise that someone would create a song about that frustration. The Archaeology Song is a ballad of hatred and remorse, dedicated to the endless hours spent swinging a pike at the dirt. Fjofjo did a good job of making the song ironic. It sounds like a dirge of tears, but it's pretty clear Fjofjo loves the game. The real-life costume is suitably hilarious, and the whole thing comes together well.

Good luck out there, archaeologists. Indiana would be proud!
