Dig Sites are relatively rare modern-day structures made and maintained by the Archaeologist Villager. They are essentially research tents made to study either fossils or tar. It is one of the few structures that isn't ruined. The biome it spawns in does not determine the type of dig site it is.

It is an easy way to obtain a Sifter and a Archeology Workbench early on. They were added in Build 7.3, the 'Dinosaur Renaissance' update.

They spawn on the surface and in the following biomes: plains, extreme hills, Forest, Desert, Savanna and possibly more.
