Heh - Indiana Jones edition


Received via e-mail, origin unknown:

Realistic Indiana Jones movies:
  • Indiana Jones and the tomb that had already been looted by robbers in the 19th century
  • Indiana Jones and pottery fragment #1478
  • Indiana Jones and the site discovered under somebody’s house so there was no way to actually dig it
  • Indiana Jones and the famous treasure that actually turned out to be an ancient chamber pot
  • Indiana Jones and the temple of maybe three damaged columns
  • Indiana Jones and the intro to archaeology class that you didn’t give a **** about and just wanted to pass for the gen ed credit

Can you suggest any more?  If so, let us know in Comments.

"Indiana Jones and the Freeway Interchange Project"

That could have more drama than you might think. Federal Highway Administration rules require an archaeological survey, but there's no requirement to preserve routine sites (old camps or 19th century foundations).

Indiana Jones and the quest for Blackbeard's treasure; a cup inscribed with ancient Words of Power, which read "Drinkest Thou Thine Ovaltine."

After majoring in anthropology, reading the textbooks, listening to the archaeology professors' tales, and looking at the descriptions of job openings*, I fear this is all too accurate.

* I kept the job doing software development after I graduated. For some reason, they don't pay that much to go dig in the dirt and look for potsherds and fill out lots of paperwork, despite the required level of schooling.

Indiana Jones and the strategic locations survey.

Some of those sites are known to have military structures from all the way before written history to current day. Such as the one grandma remembers visiting while helping with the air defense during WWII... apparently been in regular use approximately since the ice receded.

Yeah, so it'll probably end up at least partially classified, too.
