Archeological dig sites are locations where scientists and archeologists investigate fossils, ruins, ancient temples, alien ruins, alien artifacts, holy relics, or other elements. They may be located in badlands, near tar pits, in deserts, in caves, deep within jungles, or in other regions or near other terrain. They may have tents or barracks to help house both samples and those staying at the dig site. There may be mobile laboratories. Dig sites may be funded by a museum. They are home to researchers, horrifying things that should not have been awoken, and dogs that like bones.
Designing Fictional Archeological Dig Sites
Dig sites may be divided into sectors or sections with each roped off from one another. This allows for better organization and categorization of samples found. There may be scaffolding.
