An archaeological site is a place (or group of physical sites) in which evidence of past activity is preserved (either prehistoric or historic or contemporary), and which has been, or may be, investigated using the discipline of archaeology and represents a part of the archaeological record.
Much of the earliest recorded history was re-discovered relatively recently due to archaeological dig sites findings.

Archaeological record

Archaeological evidencefindsarchaeological excavations
An archaeological site is a place (or group of physical sites) in which evidence of past activity is preserved (either prehistoric or historic or contemporary), and which has been, or may be, investigated using the discipline of archaeology and represents a part of the archaeological record.
Destructive human processes, such as agriculture and land development, may damage or destroy potential archaeological sites.

Biofact (archaeology)

ecofactbiofactecofacts
Ecofacts, biological materials (such as bones, scales, and even feces) that are the result of human activity but are not deliberately modified, are also common at many archaeological sites.
In archaeology, a biofact (or ecofact) is organic material found at an archaeological site that carries archaeological significance.

There are also two most common types of geophysical survey, which is, magnetometer and ground penetrating radar.
Magnetometers are also used to detect archaeological sites, shipwrecks, and other buried or submerged objects.

Geoarchaeology

Furthermore, geoarchaeologists or environmental archaeologists would also consider a sequence of natural geological or organic deposition, in the absence of human activity, to constitute a site worthy of study.
Geoarchaeologists study the natural physical processes that affect archaeological sites such as geomorphology, the formation of sites through geological processes and the effects on buried sites and artifacts post-deposition.

Landscape archaeology

The precepts of landscape archaeology attempt to see each discrete unit of human activity in the context of the wider environment, further distorting the concept of the site as a demarcated area.

Environmental archaeology

Alluvium

Natural actions resulting in sediment being deposited include alluvial (water-related) or aeolian (wind-related) natural processes.

Jungle

In jungles and other areas of lush plant growth, decomposed vegetative sediment can result in layers of soil deposited over remains.

Colluvium

Colluviation, the burial of a site by sediments moved by gravity (called hillwash) can also happen at sites on slopes.
