            • include archaeology as a significant theme

            • include an archaeologist as a main character

            • be fictional, and not factual (not, for example, a documentary)

 Acceptable sources for the Critique Essay include:

   Films with lots of archaeology: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Timeline, etc.

   Films with some archaeology: Alien vs. Predator, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Curse of King Tut’s Tomb, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, Lara Croft: Cradle of Life, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, National Treasure, Out for a Kill, Secret of the Andes, Stargate, Unearthed, Werewolf, etc.

   Books: A Thief of Time (Hillerman), Murder in Mesopotamia (Christie), The Source (Michener), A Rumour of Bones (Connor), He Shall Thunder in the Sky (Peter), etc.

     (Avoid sources that are simply about the past or prehistory, like the film 10,000 BC, as those have facts to critique but not archaeology to critique.  Ask me if you are uncertain about your choice.)

    6) Other critique information, such as:…………………………………………………….. [12 points]
