I've worked on a dig in the Tombigbee National Forest in Mississippi. The site was called Noxubee (which means "Stinking Water").
I've also worked Tel Halif near Kibbutz Lahav in southern Israel (just north west of Masada). I had a great time at this one, staying in tents, burning up in the desert conditions. It really was fun, strangely enough.
I worked at the Institute of Maritime Archaeology at the Danish National Museum, but not specifically on a dig. Documenting the Roskilde 6 wreck in photos and 1:1 drawings.

Other people working on the (Native American) site on other days uncovered burials and boring stuff like that. Over the course of many days I found: 1 post hole (the first of the set!), a shard of pottery made by another tribe that lived hundreds of miles away (only shard found AFAIK), and a rounded, polished stone, not of a type found in the area, that the CA said probably was carried as a lucky charm. Carter probably wasn't much more excited or proud when he broke through into the tomb.
Those of you who have worked on exotic sites, or get to do it for a living, have my undying envy! :-)
We lived overseas when I was a kid, so while I have never worked on a dig, I have climbed all over ruins in the Middle East. We lived in Turkey for 3 years and you can't swing a dead cat without hitting several sites there. We also were in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and the Old city of Jerusalem.
I have been to a few new world sites in Mexico as an adult, and of course Stonehenge.
Visited Chichen Itza, but as a visitor.
It originally started twelve years ago with the intention of locating the "lost" Cistercian Abbey of Poulton. This has yet to be located.
What has been uncovered to date includes a medieval chapel (with hundreds of skeletons) and a bronze age timber circle. Numerous finds ranging from flints, Roman pottery to post-medieval finds suggest continuous occupation on the site for several thousand years.
The site was recently featured on the archaeology programme Time Team (Channel 4 in the UK). More details of the site can be found at Poulton Research Project.
Spectator at workman's village (Giza, Mark Lehner) and Red Pyramid (Dashur, Dieter Arnold)
Now I am a ‘non-traditional’ collage student (I think they mean old) and a Professor I had last summer does excavations in the Bahamas, he says humans first colonized them a few hundred years before Columbus ruined the entire neighborhood. My wife tells me that I should go on one of his workshops next year and I am tempted to take her up on the offer.
Did some paleo digs in western Colorado and Utah as well.
still teaching the local uni students how to geo phys?
