Excavation Sites

Archaeological Reconstructions

There are 3 unique sites of excavation that can be dug up and restored by your villagers. Each site must be excavated, conserved and then restored. Once restored, it becomes a 9 Harmony decoration, gives 2 Reputation Points and a powerful Perk.

These digsites and their requirements can be viewed on Glade Events.


  • It is possible to narrow down the closest Excavation Site to 1-2 Small Glades. They are never found in Small Glades directly adjacent to your starting Glade, and there is always a patch of forest between the starting Glade and the Glade with the Excavation. You could also exclude 1-2 Dangerous Glades - the Dangerous Glade excavation can never be found in a Dangerous Glade directly adjacent to the starting Glade.
  • Each Excavation Site stage requires a large amount of resources to solve. It is highly advisable to build a Warehouse in close vicinity to minimize the time it takes to haul Resources to the event.
  • Excavation Sites take a long time to solve. Glade Event work speed increasing Effects can save both time and scout labor. Sacrificing Sea Marrow Sea Marrow also helps.
  • Steel Drills (+1/2 Copper Ore Copper Ore production) is uniquely strong on Scarlet Orchard because of Coppervein Trees.
  • Archaeologist's Office encourages stockpiling Ancient Tablet Ancient Tablets to scale its Ancient Strength and Decryption Effects.
  • Not being able to source raw food is somewhat common for Scarlet Orchard due to its trees and resource distribution. Invest in farms or a food processing building to avoid starvation.
  • Consider using big Stone Stone deposits for food if your villagers are at risk of starvation. 60% chance of bonus food yields combined with Stonecutters' Camp's short production cycle will keep villagers fed at least until Stone Stone nodes run out.
  • Scarlet Orchard does not have any Insects Insects, Mushrooms Mushrooms, or Meat Meat nodes. Should you want to make Jerky Jerky or Skewers Skewers sustainably, you have to resort to using Ranch or delivery lines.
