When conducting field work as an archaeologist, it’s essential that you have somewhere reliable to record crucial observations and notes while you’re out in the field and you’re able to keep notes organised and protected. You can’t always rely on the weather when conducting field work. With this in mind, we’d always recommend choosing a waterproof field notebook .
