archaeologist

Dr. Daniel Jackson

Highly intelligent, intensely curious, wildly theoretical and with a penchant for sneezing, professor of Egyptology Daniel Jackson (James Spader) from the 1994 sci-fi flick Stargate traipses across an unknown world in search of knowledge, exploration and, unexpectedly, love. While off-world, he wears a loose robe and shawls given to him by the local tribe over his standard army clothes.

Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is a college professor of archaeology who would rather go on an adventure than lecture. He’s known for making good use of his bullwhip, although he’s not afraid to use his gun when the situation calls for it. In fact, the only thing he seems to be afraid of are snakes.

Lara Croft Reborn

In this 2013 reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, Lara Croft is a young and ambitious archaeologist on a quest to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai. She’s added new skills to her repertoire, including stealthing, ziplining, and shooting a bow and arrows. She’s also looking more like a grungy survivalist than ever before.

Lara Croft

Lara Croft is just your average run-of-the-mill English archaeologist. Dodging boulders, navigating through ancient ruins, and fighting giant stone statues is just your typical day for this video game icon. She’s been somersaulting through hazardous tombs for over a decade and she’s only getting better.
