Cleanup (Issue: missing links and more precise locations)
To meet Legacy of the Dragonborn's quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. Please help by improving the article.

Dig Sites appear throughout the game as soon as you finish the quest 'A Room with a View' and recruit Professor Patero Marassi during the follow-up quest 'Digging Up Explorers'.

Activating a dig site requires a pick-axe, upon "mining" at a dig site the Archaeology Skill will be raised by 1. Without further archaeology skill perks a dig site will give 2 Fragments and a chance of one Keystone corresponding to the type of dig site.

There are 22 Dwemer, 29 Falmer and 46 Nordic Digsites.
