Media Archaeologists

The purpose of this 2.5-3 page paper is to evaluate how archaeologist characters from popular movies actually reflect what archaeologists really do as seen through this class. That is, does the popular portrayal of archaeologists in the movies reflect the reality of archaeological research and practice?
For this paper, watch one of the major Hollywood movies (e.g., Indiana Jones, Lara Croft’s Tomb Raider, Stargate) with special attention to the way the main character portrays archaeologists. Is this a biased perspective? An accurate perceptive?.
For those movies, just choose the one that you are most comfortable to write.
Address the following :
-Describe the main character and his/her actions, both in doing archaeology and in the action of the story
-Describe any stereotypical behaviors portrayed and whether they could actually be true given the character’s time and place
-Describe the relationship of the character’s behavior regarding: their basic archaeological skills?; concern with preserving sites and cultural materials?; ethics?
2) Use ideas from the Kelly/Thomas text, lectures, and/or films to describe how your chosen movie ties into what we learned in class

3) Present a critical analysis of how the main character(s) reflects what archaeologists really do as seen through this class.

4) Proofread your essay for spelling, grammar, organization and syntax errors?
