It’s archaelogy when you have permission from the relevant authorities, and grave robbing when you don’t. Each government sets it’s own rules, which might or might not consider the age of the site.

For it to be grave robbing the grave needs to have an identified body placed in a registered specific place. Archaeology takes place where they don’t know for certain what they are going to find when they dig.
