E is the right answer.
This is the case of Idiom, Subject verb agreement.
Since discoveries were made during excavation and not at excavation. So choice B and C are wrong. Choice A is wrong clause 'that...the excavation' is not the right subject for verb has. Choice D is wrong for using 'excavating'.

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

But was has nearly doubled the number is not the discovery (as E says), but the 21 ceramic figurines themselves (as in B).

Please, thoughts on that.
Thanks!
