Entry: OOPArt
originally posted by Nobody in Particular

An archaeology-based acronym for Out Of Place Artifact.

Refers to an item(s) which should not be naturally found in a site. OOPArts are often brought onto a site by pranksters, hobos, illegal dumpers and careless UEers

ex. -A car on the second floor of an abandoned office building
-Several hundred pounds of boxes filled with obscure biographies in an old farm equipment factory
-Cellphones in a farmhouse abandoned since the 1950's

Some peculiar items, such as porn, stained undergarments, headless dolls, single shoes, beer bottles, and simplistic graffiti are found so frequently they are essentially the arrowheads and pottery shards of UE, and are therefore rarely considered OOPArts
