9 Highly Questionable Actions Committed By Indiana Jones

9 Highly Questionable Actions Committed By Indiana Jones | Archaeo | Scoop.it

I’m sure this is common knowledge to everyone reading this article, but Indiana Jones is one of the most famous and recognisable characters in all of pop culture. Modelled after the do-gooders of 1930s film serials, Indiana Jones has become a film icon and one of the most universally beloved movie characters of all time.

With intelligence, bravado, wit and charm, Indy uppercuts Nazis, cracks his bullwhip and seduces the panties off of many attractive females… all while saving the world. Women want to be with him, men want to be him, and Nazis gleefully bend over and receive their beat downs at the mere presence of his fists. It simply isn’t possible to name a cooler character than Indiana Jones, and don’t even try to say Han Solo. Compared to Indy, Han is just a scruffy nerf-herder.

The Indiana Jones franchise has not only been commercially successful but has had a profound and lasting influence on society. Despite being a homage to various adventurers who came before him, Indy has directly influenced the characterisation of heroes like Nathan Drake of the Uncharted videogame series and Lara Croft of Tomb Raider.

Sylvain Rotillon's insight:

Excellent ! When I worked with archaeologists, people on the field were very frequently talk about Indy as a way to establish the contact. It creates good feelings, but the dark side of Indy, which is well detailed in this article, is that he is an old fashioned archaeologist only interested by artifacts. Despite the huge evolution of this science since few decades, archaeology is still perceived as a science of artifacts, not plainly as a social science. Indy is partly responsible of this, but we still love him !

Sylvain Rotillon's insight:

Cette nouvelle technologie ouvre des perspectives inouïes. Un tel lot de textes, collectés et conservés par un intellectuel de l'époque peut receler des merveilles aujourd'hui perdues. Je suis admiratif par notre créativité et par notre ténacité, il y a plus de deux siècles que l'on cherche le moyen de lire ces papyrus, on y arrive peut-être !
