Overview

Indiana Jones made anthropology sexy. His adventures took him through all corners of the world and made the life of an academic professor seem more fit for a CIA field agent. Very few cinema legends, however, can survive without taking inspiration from real life people--that is certainly the case with Indiana Jones.

This biography will explore the man and the legend, and let you come to your own conclusion about if he was the real Indiana Jones.
