Excavation would be your normal Search the List category for just the excavation, or General Contractor for excavation and foundation work too. if you mean digging a basement out under an existing home, then Foundation Repair or a House Moving company which does jackups and foundation excavation under them would be the normal categories.

You are talking hand digging, which is not necessarily the best solution - commonly cheaper if significant excavation (full height basement) is required to put in an oversize basemetn access doorway (whcih can be reduced in size later if wanted) to allow a small backhoe or bobcat excavator in there.

Anyway, here are some previous similar questions with answers about excavating a basement under an existing building on grade:
