Indiana Jones update 'Indiana Jones': Real archaeologists don't have whips (Well not all of us. . . .)
Though he preaches research and good science in the classroom, the world's most famous archaeologist often is an acquisitive tomb raider in the field with a scorched-earth policy about what he leaves behind. While actual archaeologists like the guy and his movies, they wouldn't necessarily want to work alongside him on a dig.

Indy's bull-in-a-china-shop approach to archaeology will be on display again May 22 with "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," in which he's sure to rain destruction down on more historic sites and priceless artifacts.

Pretty good article. Not just a bunch of people saying how Indy doesn't do real archeology and oh, what a horrible thing it is.
