The Archaeologist is one of the only men, from his era, to examine the ruins of the Old Kingdom. His study of the Focus Sites and Old Kingdom passages put him at odds with Jack of Blades, and as a result, he has become rather reclusive, hiding wherever he can. The Hero first meets him on a mission for Maze, who claimed he was an old friend of his, which is unlikely since he was working for Jack, at this point. The Hero later saves him from Jack's minions, only for him to continue hiding. He runs off to the Cities of the West, disguised as a glove trader. He then never stepped near a ruin or opened a book since. According to him, he knows everything.
