Real Indiana Jones (though she would rather not!
#1
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/7359968.stm

Harrison Ford will soon be back on-screen as famous archaeologist Indiana Jones, but one woman puts him in the shadows.

Beatrice De Cardi is 93-years-old and possibly the world's oldest archaeologist. The BBC took a look at her life and work.

I must confess to being one of her 'boys' - who drove her about and acted as bodyguard and general gopher.. a real honour... I have so many good memories of those times... She's the best!

and at 93 and still being an active archaeologist...
