Better in Greece, Malta, Croatia or Portugal. Similar costs, but better weather and same job prospects after graduation. Archeologists in Poland mostly check land before road construction start. All job places are already taken. But if weather is not a priority for you, then Poland is good country for students.

It's not good to study it anywhere. It's usually near the top of useless majors worldwide. Better to study a STEM field like engineering or chemistry, and then branch out into archeology once you have some useful technical skills and knowledge that you can apply to the job. Otherwise, chance are much better that you will end you career advancement as a barista at Starbucks than landing one of the very few archeology jobs that open each year and draw several thousand applicants apiece.

Think of STEM as the balls of academics, and the humanities as crotch lice. Which would you rather have?

The sad thing is that are people out there would would find this funny.

It's fine to study archeology, in spite of what Dominic says. Sorry Dom, but there's more to getting an education than getting a certificate to work in a box your entire life.

True, if you are independently wealthy and set for life. False if you have to actually earn not only enough to live on, but also enough to pay for your studies. Kind of hard to do by stocking shelves at Tesco.
