The Confusing World of GPS and Archaeology

I have been given the task of comparing prices for hiring and or buying GPS equipment for the Silchester project this year. Why is finding out prices and product specifications so difficult? I don’t want a hi tec magic machine with a black box, just something simple! I’ve spent the last two days calling and emailing people, having meetings and generally stressing.

Then, I find out through someone who knows someone that the department has a Topcon FC200, brand new and never used. Why never used? Because noone knows how. Possibly, because noone knew it was there. Arrrrggghhh! Manual reading for me tomorrow!
