The archaeology potion is a potion that boosts Archaeology by +3 levels when consumed. The levels will reduce at 1 per minute. It can be made at level 78 Herblore, after learning the recipe, by combining an unfinished avantoe potion with five of any type of soil.

The archaeology potion recipe is tradeable and may be bought from the Grand Exchange for 8,539,771 coins. Level 90 Archaeology is required to excavate from hotspots where recipe fragments can be obtained.
