Indiana Jones sells movie tickets and fills archaeology classes

Action on the screen, and in the classroom: Indiana Jones not only attracts viewers at the cineplex. His movies send more people into archaeology classrooms as well.

Are you like me and making sure that the new Indiana Jones movie is part of your holiday weekend agenda? Read this and find out why archaeology professors like to have movies like this and the Lara Croft series hit the screens. So go ahead, tell your parents that it's part of your homework assignment this weekend to go see the new Indiana Jones movie. You've got my okay!

POST SCREENING UPDATE: Okay, I've now seen the film and had a lot of questions in my head about crystal skulls. Did you encounter the same wonderings after seeing the film? JGordon conveniently answers a lot of them in a post he did here on the Buzz earlier this spring. Also, here's a National Geographic link with even more information on the history of crystal skulls. And IMHO, despite his age Indy still can kick Commie butt pretty well!!!!!
