Whitewashed Tomb is the blog of Dr. Richard Rothaus, an archaeologist and historian with Trefoil.

Matthew 23:27: ” You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.”

The public image of archaeology sometimes bears little resemblance to the reality of archaeology.  Whitewashed Tomb invites you to check in on one archaeologist’s reality.  After all, dead men and unclean things are interesting too.
