Tagging

Main tag is historic=archaeological_site accompanied with one of the following tags:

  • site_type=bigstone - Natural stones that have been treated by humans are also listed here. Undecorated stones, even when they have mystic backgrounds or meanings, are not archaeological objects, and are mapped as natural=stone.
  • site_type=tumulus - Wikipedia-16px.png Tumulus - a mound of earth and stones raised over a grave or graves. Tumuli are also known as barrows, burial mounds, Hügelgrab(de) or kurgans.
    • field=yes - Some graveyards consist of a number of tumuli. To avoid mapping all of them, the field tag can be used as an option.
    Please note that at least some tumuli are also megalith structures and that there is a proposal for mapping them as tombs as well (historic=tomb with tomb=tumulus).
  • site_type=megalith - Wikipedia-16px.png Megalith(en)(de), mégalithe(fr) - a structure or monument constructed from one or more stone boulders, decorated or undecorated.
    • megalith_type=* - in many cases the megaliths can be further differentiated so you should add this tag as well.
    • moved=yes - optional - there are megaliths that have been moved. [1](de)
  • site_type=fortification - moats or mounds as remains of former fortifications
    • fortification_type=* - in many cases the fortifications can be further differentiated so you should add this tag as well.
  • site_type=hut_circle - A Wikipedia-16px.png hut circle is the archaeological term given to a circular or oval depression in the ground with evidence of a low stone wall around it that used to be the foundation of a round house.
  • site_type=city - To specify an archaeological site as a historic city.
  • site_type=settlement - places where humans (or hominins) lived. Such sites contains manmade tools, weapons, pottery and various houseware, which form cultural layers. Usually those sites has no buildings or only foundations of buildings left. If there is some buildings or walls left, use ruins=* or other appropriate tags.
