SiteA geographic place where there is evidence of past human activity. It’s not always easy to say where a site ends. Think of a city that has fewer and fewer houses as you go out from the center. Archaeological sites are similar-there might be a “center” and then a thinner scatter going out, so the boundary may reflect where the artifacts become much scarcer.
