The Real Life Indiana Jones
The Biography of V. Gordon Childe - The Man Who Inspired a Cinematic Icon
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
While some have contended T.E. Lawrence was the inspiration for Jones, a better candidate is someone a little less known in the world of pop culture. His name was V. Gordon Childe. While he may not be known to the mainstream world, his contribution to the world of anthropology were greater than few others. 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.
Considering the first statement claims that Indiana Jones made Anthropology sexy, that just goes to show that those making the comparison here don't know that Indy was an archeologist, well that doesn't bode well.
