Archaeology or Indiana Jones: Is Archaeology Really Like Indiana Jones?

Wednesday, July 8, 2015 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

Dr. Steve is BACK! ("I Want My Mummy," CSI Egypt, X-Raying the Pharaohs) to talk about his adventures in Petra!

Have you seen Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? The story takes place in a city named "Alexandretta" which was partially filmed in Petra, Jordan. Dr. Steven was in this very city in 1992.

Is archaeology really like Indiana Jones? Are there deadly traps hidden inside ancient tombs? Does the floor under your feet suddenly collapse into a bottomless pit? How do you actually “dig” at a real dig? Dr. Steve will talk about his experiences, basics in archaeology in this highly illustrated presentation.

For ages 8-up (recommended for 4th grade & up) ~ No Registraiton ~ Blue Bell Summer Event
