Performers, Cast and Crew:
Tomb hunting isn't something that just happens in the INDIANA JONES movies--these daredevils exist in real life. THE REAL TOMB HUNTERS tells the true tales of these scholars' enthralling adventures in pursuit of knowledge, from being kidnapped by villagers and braving booby-trapped tombs, to fighting the Nazis.
Description by New Video Group:
Fighting Nazis; grabbing golden treasure; fleeing angry natives; dodging pitfalls in a booby-trapped temple--we all know how fictional explorers and archaeologists spend their days. But does real life compare'
HISTORY follows some of the most daring archaeologists from around the world and details the dangers they face, including booby-trapped tombs, looters in the jungles of Cancuen, and a real kidnapping by angry villagers in Chiapas. Examine stories of past explorers who helped shape the stereotypes of iconic movie heroes, and join their exciting quests through desserts, jungles and harsh terrain.
There are no special effects, no stuntmen, and no retakes... and for these real-life archaeologists, no guarantee they'll survive for a sequel.
