That twenty-one ceramic dog figurines were discovered during the
excavating
of a 1,000-year-old Hohokam village in Tempe, Arizona, has
nearly doubled the number of these artifacts known to exist.
A. That twenty-one ceramic dog figurines were discovered during the excavating
B. Twenty-one ceramic dog figurines discovered at the excavation
C. Discovering twenty-one ceramic dog figurines at the excavating
D. Ceramic dog figurines, twenty-one of which were discovered during excavating
E. The discovery of twenty-one ceramic dog figurines during the excavation

OA is E. However, The problem I have with E is that I have always thought that "during" has to appear with a specific time. Ex.- during one year, during Prehistoric era, etc. and never in phrases such as I drank a lot during my birthday, or I will meet my cousin during holidays.
Could anybody clarify?
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

Here during means throughout the period. There are other uses like you said.

E. The discovery of twenty-one ceramic dog figurines during the excavation ----> figurines were discovered throughout the excavation of the 1,000-year-old village
