History and Indiana Jones

We begin the new season of Vox Historia: The Voice of History by examining the history found in Indian Jones.  In class, the students recently watched Raiders of the Lost Ark. As part of this project, students picked an historical aspect of the movie. They then researched the topics and will present discussions about their findings on new episodes of Vox Historia.

Not wanting to take from the students, instructors Bruce Janu and Jim Pfeiffer sit down in this episode to discuss the history found in a later movie of the series, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. In this discussion, they touch upon the Knights Templar and zeppelins. This episode was produced as a model for the students as their produce their own podcasts.
