Urban Archaeology: Electronic site registers: a way forward?

Several projects have however successfully used electronic data-loggers in adverse conditions, including all the human bone assessment data for the Spitalfields project which was inputted into hand-held dataloggers despite conditions of high humidity in the on-site processing area. With the increased use of digital cameras and GPS we are now used to looking after electronic equipment on site, and dealing with all the issues of rain, mud, damp and battery charging. Although context sheets may be with us for some years yet, there is one facet of site recording that can be very simply transferred to electronic data-logger: the site registers.

The pictograph we'll be looking at is located at 41CX2 and is part of a prehistoric site on the eastern edge of the Pecos River in West Texas. I like to use data collected from this site because there are no issues with making it publically available.
