Taking a degree in Mechanical Engineering shouldn't preclude you from a
career in archaeology, yet. Archaeologists I've worked with or known over
the years have come from a variety of educational backgrounds. Degrees,
where attained, were as often in completely unrelated fields. Even the odd
Classicist...

There's nothing to stop you, after graduation, from moving into archaeology:
Obtain some volunteer experience during your vacations; armed with that,
evident enthusiasm and some persuasion, you should be able to get work with
a unit. That's your toe-in-the-door.

That said, in this age of reliance on paper qualifications, you may feel
more comfortable doing a post-grad course, even an MA, in archaeology. That
would have the added benefit of exposing you to 'insider' opportunities and
possibilities.
