Adventures in Archaeology: The real Indiana Jones II.
Who was Indiana Jones based on? “Real Heroic Age” archaeologists, such as Belzoni, Howard Carter, Heinrich Schliemann, have stories to tell of adventure, courage, danger and daring-do. They discovered ancient civilisations, tombs and treasures: Egypt, Sumer, Assyria, Babylon and Mycenaean Greece. Indiana Jones was a quiet and cautious man in comparison.
