Starting area. You begin exploring the dig site here. Eothas' footprint is nearby, however you won't get anything from examining it.
Deserted cat. You can find Gosha here and she is a pet. Placing Gosha in the pet slot in the main character's inventory will give you +1 to Perception and lower the chances of critical strikes from enemy attacks.
Shielding cage. Animances are hiding inside. You must defeat nearby young panthers first. Talk to Benessa to continue the "Standed" quest and then head over to the entrance to Arena Sub-level (M9). Aloth will be among the people who have left the cage - he's a new potential team member.
The map above depicts the Engwithan Digsite. This is one of the more important areas visited in the early parts of the Pillars of Eternity 2 Deadfire campaign. On the premises of the dig site, there is a huge cage from which you should free people who are trapped inside. You can also take a look around the dig site and use one of several ways to neighboring, underground areas.
Important areas at the Engwithan Digsite
3. Stray cat. You can find Goshe, who is a pet character. Placing her in the pet slot of a character's inventory grants you+1 Perception and reduces the chance of getting critically hit by enemies.
4. Guarded cage. Animancers are hiding in there. First, you have to slay young panthers that are roaming nearby. After opening the cage speak to Benessa due to the main quest line (Stranded) and then move to the entrance to Arena sub-level (M9).
Among the people freed from the cage, you will find Aloth, who is a new, potential party member.

Types of enemies and monsters in the Engwithan Digsite
Young Panther - there are a few of these close to the large cage. Take them on one by one while carefully managing the placement of the weaker party members during combat.
Other information concerning the Engwithan Digsite
There are very many burnt bodies in this area. Remember to click on them to get some additional gold.
The dig site branches out into five different locations. The most important one is the passage to the Arena sub-level (M9), because this is the place you have to explore in order to move the main storyline forward. Visiting all of the locations depicted on the M10 map of our guide is optional.
