Archaeological soil box detail.png

An archaeological soil box is an item used in the Archaeology skill. It can hold up to 50 of each soil and is bought for free from Ezreal during the introduction to Archaeology. Upgrades to increase the capacity to 100, 250 and 500 of each soil can be bought from the Archaeology Guild Shop.

The box can be filled with soil, emptied from soil, and inspected to reveal its contents. Hovering over the box also shows the contents.

Upgrades
Qualification required Chronotes Capacity
Intern Free 50
Assistant 3,500 100
Associate 18,000 250
Professor 48,000 500

When the box is filled to the maximum capacity the first time a message appears stating "Your soil box is full! You can screen soil at the Archaeology campus. Soil can be screened directly from the soil box.".

The contents of the box can be deposited in the bank by using the soil box on a deposit box, bank chest, or banker.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 6 April 2020 (Update):
    • Inspecting a damaged or restored artefact and filling or inspecting a soil box will no longer interrupt your current action, allowing you to continue excavating uninterrupted.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Attempting to put anything other than soil in the box will generate the message "You cannot store that in your soil box."
