Archaeologists work slowly and carefully in order to recover as much information about an archaeological site as possible, which can then be used to interpret it. More specifically:

* In order to avoid damaging the artifacts they hope to recover. * To make sure as many artifacts as possible are recovered.

* In order to avoid missing changes in soil texture and colour that may indicate different layers of construction or abandonment of a site. * In order not make mistakes and to be exact in what they're working on.
