Yes, well, that is what you have to do. You can say enough about a site
to establish its significance without giving enough evidence to locate
it precisely. If you include maps, use a large scale (equivalent to
quoting a few words with no identifying context) and add a natural
feature that isn't really there, or omit one that is, in such a way that
the ruse does not affect your explanations. And hand-draw the maps, a
bit approximately; don't use OS maps.
