How to tell if an Expedition site is “claimed”?

Basically, How close is too close?

Other civs regularly get annoyed if you dig up one of “their” dig sites, and will demand that you stop doing it.

Since the game doesn’t tell you that you have broken a promise until after you do so, I want to try and find out how to tell if they will have claimed a dig site before I dig.

I assume any Expedition site within 3 squares of one of their cities is going to count even if the city border hasn’t expanded out to it, but does anyone know how much further out their claims extend?


I always assume that if the explorer can see the city border from the expedition site you are too close.
