The equipment was taken from a white Toyota Hilux in the car park of Warwick Hospital last Friday 5th January, where a member of the archaeological team was receiving treatment.
The Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service had been surveying a site in Barford when a member injured her ankle and needed to be taken to hospital.
Items stolen from the vehicle included a Leica GS08 Smart Antenna, a Leica Field Controller, a carbon fibre GPS system and a Nikon D50 camera.
