Archaeological Digging has been taking place all over the world. Famous Sites that continue to be excavated include the Pyramids, Giza, and Pompeii.
Whereas the purpose of digs used to be to uncover buried wealth such as jewels and gold from known Sites, the goal is now to inform our understanding of human activity on a particular Site and further our knowledge of historical periods.

Definitions of Archaeological Digging
Historical Archaeology: This is the study of cultures that had access to a form of writing.
Ethnoarchaeology: This is the study of living cultures.
Experimental Archaeology: This is the use of new and empirical scientific methods to further the field of Archaeology.
Archaeological Digging is a reasonably safe activity as long as you take some basic safety precautions:
- Always ensure you travel with a reputable and licensed Dig Site Organiser
- Ensure you are not surrounded by loose rocks, soil, or land that could give way
Common injuries such as cuts and bruises should be treated by cleaning with antibacterial spray and then covering them with a plaster or bandage.
If your dig takes place in a foreign country, check with your doctor about receiving the appropriate Vaccinations before you travel.
