Or, a bizarre, out of place structure may invite future researchers to dig deep in order to understand.

Perhaps just bury it. A mile underground. Leave no access, no marks. Technologies/beings who might uncover it should be experienced enough with radioactive substances. Hell, they might be looking for it, specifically.

If you leave a weird marker, someone or something will be fascinated by it in the future, then investigate.

i'm pretty sure the answer to this conundrum, is dead people.
Whatever way can be foudn to leave behind detailed realistic enough, unmistakable enough depictions of dead humans.
Pretty sure we'll not see depictions of us dead and decide it means this is a good place to stick around.
Dead you is a pretty universal negative symbol for us form the past, and us now, and us in the future.

We over stylize and make cartoonsih dead us in order to make it not be so naturally ominous. So i feel pretty sure we'll always find real looking dead and suffering us is never cool.

The real problem is making that to out last anything that's ever been made before and maybe even all of what we now known for an us of the future we have no concept or understating of, other than they probably still look a good bit like us.

Uh, you realize that when mummies were first dug up the general human reaction was to eat them, right?

I just read a book about this where "they" planted a bad thing and it was discovered by a North Sea oil rig.  It was really bad, and everyone died at the end, mostly.

Totally agree with your third paragraph though.

We have that exact robot in my neighborhood, but it attracts people rather than repelling them.

Well sure, who doesn't like a plinth?

The "Dam of Innards" mentioned on the email submission thingie would probably do the job if you procured fresh innards every couple of days. Eventually word would get around that if you see the dam, you are added to it.

I'm guessing we use robots to maintain it. A small army of robots with chainsaws and buckets.

Actually I read that years ago in this fascinating book, Food in History. The companion, Sex in History, is an equally good read.

I have a modest goal of building a small Stonehenge in the cove we live on. I want to construct it out of bricks when the lake level is low during the winter. It would be submerged the rest of the year. I just need to figure out the scale.

Which is why I vote fore Cosmic Rift or Disrupted Pollen lines.  I'm not entirely sure what the intended nature of the rift would be, but I think a black hole would fit the brief and it would certainly take care of the waste problem.  As for the trees, they are the least conspicuous and would create a calming, aesthetically pleasing environment in which people could forget their initial inquisitiveness.

I'm pretty sure current archaeologists have built a career around digging up old dead people from strange ruins, thoroughly pawing through the surrounding area, and displaying their often unexplained findings in public exhibitions...
