Excavation is the best-known and most commonly used technique within the science of archaeology.
Individual excavations are normally referred to simply as "digs" by those who participate, this being an over-literal description of the process.
An excavation concerns itself with a specific archaeological site or connected series of sites, and may be carried on over a number of years, since the work tends to be seasonal.
