There was an idea floating around to watch some films that were about museums or had museums in them as a central part of the action. It might be helpful to extend this to archaeology as well! Anyway I am trying to put together an informal list so if anyone has any ideas or favourites please list them here! If you want to put a review as well that could be helpful. Ones I can think from the top of my head include:
The Da Vinci Code - one word review = abysmal
Night at the Museum
Indiana Jones trilogy
The Mummy Parts 1 & 2
Of course there is Friends with Ross working in the museum as well so maybe we need to extend it to TV as well as film?
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
