The The Dig Site quest may be started by talking to any of the examiners here. Searching through the bookshelves will allow the player to find the Beaten Book, which is the starting point of the Elemental Workshop II quest, provided the player has completed the Elemental Workshop I Quest.
The Exam Centre also contains a Potter's wheel.
Clapping in the exam centre is part of various Treasure Trails. In addition, there is a locked chest under one of the red dragons' heads on the wall which plays a part in Treasure Trails. An Examiner will give the player a Puzzle box with the right clue in their inventory.
You can identify a liquid, collected from the barrel in the digsite by giving it to the Archaeological expert here. The identified liquid - Nitroglycerin - is commonly used with Dharok's set in the Pest Control minigame.
