Processing soil through a shaker screen recovers artifacts which may not have been noted during hand excavation.
The drying racks are large enough to keep the artifacts sorted by their provenience, and they allow free circulation of air. Image by NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Another established method of dating is potassium-argon dating. This technique, called excavation, is often done by hand and involves rigorously scientific protocols. All civilizations, however, leave behind physical evidence, including structures and foundations, waste from cities or agricultural areas, and burial items or other artifacts.

Underwater archaeology requires scientists to be familiar with diving and submersible equipment, as well as the effects of water on soil and artifacts. Although the emphasis is on prehistoric material culture of western North America, the concepts Used as a textbook for my Lab Techniques in Anthropology course, it is well organized, and full of direct information as well as a multitude of references to other sources on the subject matter involved.
Offered by School of Culture History and Language• The 18th and 19th centuries were a time of innovation in shipbuilding; technological change was rapid.

These are protected places, as they are war graves.
Discussions about its efficacy have appeared in American Antiquity lately: Hunter, Andrea A.
