Name people that you think might have been the real inspiration ( or could have been ) for Indiana Jones. As far as I know, no one has ever been named by his creator,but that doesn't matter. This thread is about explorers who took chances and had adventures etc.
Pick one ( or more if you post more than once or whatever ) and tell us about one of his ( or her ) adventures. Pick some moments then from the adventure and then give us a video or at least some audio that could serve as theme music for this segment.
I am going to post text on my choices for explorers first, and then insert the video/audio accompaniment later.
The Life of Sir Richard Burton, by Thomas Wright
The Virtual Exploration Society - Roy Chapman Andrews
First, a Lovecraft story to enhance the mood.
The prototype ( shorter )
