Archaeological adventurers

Seekers for ancient truths and artefacts. Treasure hunters, adventurers and scholars or just someone with a mission.

See also: Mummy movies, which often feature archaeologists, although they are often unfortunate victims. I also have an occult detective list, which has some crossover with this list, as well as being another well-known archetype.
