I remember reading somewhere about how Callanish was only just poking above the peat until it was fully excavated (in the 19th Century maybe, or even later?) so it does happen. There's also quite a few cases in the Peak District of monuments being rediscovered when peat cutting has taken place, or heather burning. But your question is a good one, to which I have no useful answer. Bloody useless me.
