I really like it, we do it regularly. I think it might be what got me into archaeology. That probably sounds a bit strange I guess but it's all about followng clues in the landscape.

Is it still done with grid maps and compass?  Or is everything GPS now?

No that would be cheating, lol. My school doesn't do it that way, anyway.

If you used GPS you'd prabably end up on the 9 o'clock news.... being rescued by Prince Andrew in his helicopter.
