The Department of Medieval Archaeology of the University of Siena has been engaged for several years in the testing of GPS survey application for landscape archaeology. In the ﬁrst section of this paper we have summarised the GPS application developed for ﬁeld-walking, aerial, geophysical and topographical surveys. In the second section we have discussed the fact that, since the second half of the 1990s, we have felt a progressive disjunction between work in the laboratory and work in the ﬁeld. While the availability of advanced technologies has been rapidly growing, activities in the ﬁeld have continued to make use of instruments and methodologies developed in the 1970s. A mobile GIS system managed through the merging of PDA and GPS technologies represents at the moment the best available solution for restoring the link. The conclusions reached in our experiments using these devices consistently go far beyond the increased ﬁeldwork efﬁciency and ﬁnally make it possible to systematically apply strategies and methodologies developed in the past but rarely used up to now because they were too time consuming.
