The list author says:
  "Antonio Banderas plays a Jesuit sent by the Vatican to investigate when an Israeli archaeologist [Olivia Williams] uncovers a crucified body in a rich man's tomb during a rescue dig. Like Joe Zias"

Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade - Special Edition [DVD]
2.  Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade - Special Edition [DVD] DVD ~ Harrison Ford
The list author says:
  "Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Denholm Elliott, Indie, Nazis, the Crusades, Petra and Biblical archaeology - what's not to like."
£5.00   Used & New from: £3.50
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Indiana Jones - Raiders Of The Lost Ark - Special Edition [DVD]

£5.75   Used & New from: £0.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Bones - Season 5 [DVD]
4.  Bones - Season 5 [DVD] DVD ~ David Boreanaz

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Lara Croft Tomb Raider -- Special Collector's Edition [DVD] [2001]
5.  Lara Croft Tomb Raider -- Special Collector's Edition [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Angelina Jolie
The list author says:
  "Obviously, as an archaeologist, I found this to be an eerily accurate depiction of my life: the guns, the latex."
£2.58   Used & New from: £0.01
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life [DVD] [2003]
6.  Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Angelina Jolie
The list author says:
  "I saw this with Sean Kingsley, so it passed the all-important 'two archaeologists' test. And I stayed in the cinema despite needing a wisdom tooth pulled straight after"
£2.71   Used & New from: £0.01
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Lawrence of Arabia - Two Disc Set [DVD]
7.  Lawrence of Arabia - Two Disc Set [DVD] DVD ~ Peter O'Toole
The list author says:
  "A classic movie. Omar Sharif, Peter O'Toole, David Lean, desert, war, Middle Eastern politics ... it's a stretch calling it an archaeology movie, except that T.E. Lawrence was an archaeologist."
£14.98   Used & New from: £0.90
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (300 customer reviews) | 10 customer discussions

The English Patient (Special Edition) [DVD]
8.  The English Patient (Special Edition) [DVD] DVD ~ Ralph Fiennes
The list author says:
  "Michael Ondaatje's book and Anthony Minghella's movie were quite different, but equally good. Ralph Fiennes plays the real-life archaeologist / adventurer / spy / possible Nazi or double-agent ..."

The Omen Trilogy Box Set [DVD]
9.  The Omen Trilogy Box Set [DVD] DVD ~ Lee Remick
The list author says:
  "The 2006 re-make was surprisingly good, as were sequels II and III - but the original is the best. It starts with an excavation at Tarquinia, and takes in Israel and Meggido."
£19.49   Used & New from: £0.49
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Dominion - Prequel To The Exorcist [DVD]

£2.72   Used & New from: £0.01
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Stargate [DVD]
12.  Stargate [DVD] DVD ~ Kurt Russell
The list author says:
  "James Spader for once playing geek rather than dissolute / sexy, as Egyptologist Dr. Daniel Jackson. Kurt Russell as a macho Colonel. Aliens. People speaking ancient Egyptian ..."
£5.98   Used & New from: £0.35
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (156 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom - Special Edition [DVD]

Sahara [DVD] [2005]
15.  Sahara [DVD] [2005] DVD ~ Matthew McConaughey
The list author says:
  "I'm still not sure that this is strictly an archaeology movie, but it's a fun couple of hours and shows that you can dig non-ancient things."
£2.70   Used & New from: £0.01
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (72 customer reviews)

The Ninth Gate [DVD] [1999] [2000]
16.  The Ninth Gate [DVD] [1999] [2000] DVD ~ Johnny Depp
The list author says:
  "This is a totally gratuitous inclusion because I enjoyed the movie - it's more occult / religion / horror"
£2.75   Used & New from: £0.16
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (86 customer reviews)

The Thomas Crown Affair [DVD] [1999]
17.  The Thomas Crown Affair [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Pierce Brosnan
The list author says:
  "Whilst I'm pushing the boundaries, I might as well claim that this movie is very important in terms of art theft, museum studies and related cultural property issues."
£3.40   Used & New from: £0.10
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (81 customer reviews)

National Treasure/National Treasure 2 - Book Of Secrets [DVD]
18.  National Treasure/National Treasure 2 - Book Of Secrets [DVD] DVD ~ Nicolas Cage
The list author says:
  "Any movie that combines the Temple Treasure and the Founding Fathers, whilst managing to be a good adventure yarn, is worth a couple of hours. I also enjoyed the sequel."
£9.99   Used & New from: £4.22
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions
