There are 2 ways to examine relics. One is Sub-aerial research, which is to discover relics and historic sites. The other one is Excavation research, which is to examine remains and historic sites systematically by excavating under the historic sites.
The excavation research is divided into Planning excavation and Urgent excavation. The Planning excavation is for the historic sites that are scientifically important. The Urgent excavation is for the historic sites that are under the risk by many kinds of construction.
