I’m always on the lookout for new additions to my archaeology kit bag, and I got these from 99 Ranch, a local Asian supermarket. The ruler is particularly exciting, as it makes a great ratcheting noise when opening and has holes so you can mark precisely at each centimeter. I did a lot of drawing this summer, but didn’t bring any of my own supplies so I was using the side of a plastic compass for a straight-edge, which was wholly unsatisfying.
And they’re pink with horrible pandas, which will surely bring groans from fellow archaeologists. Yaaay! All of this for about $3. Not bad.
