# Pontifex remains

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The pontifex remains are excavation hotspots at Kharid-et - Chapel excavation site that players can excavate after reaching level 81 Archaeology. They are within the chapel, which requires a pontifex signet ring either worn, in backpack, or in toolbelt to access.

The hotspots initially appear as ancient gravel, requiring uncovering before becoming usable. Uncovering the hotspots yields a one-time reward of 211 Archaeology experience.
