Archaeology Soap Should Be Renamed “Primordial Soap”

 |  |  |  February 2, 2016

Growing up, I wanted to be an archaeologist right up until I found out you don’t get to raid tombs and carry a whip. I still like finding lost treasure, these days that just means digging my phone out from under the seat of my car. For now, the deepest I’ll probably get to dig is through the layers of this bar of soap.


It’s called Archaeology Soap and it has three layers of different colors. Somewhere in the soap are a pair of plastic dinosaurs you need to unearth. The bottom layer has pumice, the second layer has bentonite clay, and the top layer is green. It almost looks like a brownie and I sort of want to bite it.


ThinkGeek is the exclusive purveyor of this dinosaur infused soap. Get your own for $16.99 per 3-inch block. I just hope it doesn’t smell like crude oil.
