Philip Arthur Rahtz (11 March 1921 – 2 June 2011) was a British archaeologist. Rahtz was born in Bristol. After leaving Bristol Grammar School, he served with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. During war service, Rahtz became friends with the archaeologist Ernest Greenfield (excavator of Great Witcombe Roman Villa, Gloucestershire). This friendship sparked a personal interest in archaeology and a professional career, which began with the excavations at Chew Valley Lake (north Somerset) in 1953. A wide range of excavations in the area followed including Glastonbury Tor in 1964-1966 and a Romano-Celtic Temple at Chew Stoke. He has also excavated at Bordesley Abbey.

Rahtz was soon running summer school excavations for the University of Birmingham as well as lecturing and in 1978 he was appointed professor at the University of York.
