Description

Covers the archaeological content of approximately 120 popular films, most of which have been produced in the United States since 1912. A unique feature is the inclusion of archaeologically significant dialogue from films that reveal how the industry portrays archaeology. Key words at the top of each page in the filmography allow readers to locate a particular film by title. Extensive commentaries appear for the newer pictures while briefer remarks are found for older films.
