"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]
Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade - Special Edition [DVD]
"Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Denholm Elliott, Indie, Nazis, the Crusades, Petra and Biblical archaeology - what's not to like."

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life [DVD] [2003]
"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"
Lawrence of Arabia - Two Disc Set [DVD]
Lawrence of Arabia - Two Disc Set [DVD]
"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."
The English Patient (Special Edition) [DVD]
The English Patient (Special Edition) [DVD]
"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]
The Omen Trilogy Box Set [DVD]
"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."
Dominion - Prequel To The Exorcist [DVD]

"Father Merrin, after the horrors of WWII, is working as an archaeologist in Kenya. There he discovers a buried, perfectly preserved Byzantine church built by Justinian."

"Renny Harlin prequel - as above, but with wooden acting and bad CGI"
Stargate [DVD]
Stargate [DVD]
"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 ..."

Sahara [DVD] [2005]
Sahara [DVD] [2005]
"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."
The Ninth Gate [DVD] [1999] [2000]
The Ninth Gate [DVD] [1999] [2000]
"This is a totally gratuitous inclusion because I enjoyed the movie - it's more occult / religion / horror"
The Thomas Crown Affair [DVD] [1999]
The Thomas Crown Affair [DVD] [1999]
"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."
National Treasure/National Treasure 2 - Book Of Secrets [DVD]
National Treasure/National Treasure 2 - Book Of Secrets [DVD]
"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."
