The no.1 community for all things Dr Jones!
Welcome the no.1 Indiana Jones community on livejournal! or at least that's what I like to think... I created this place a while back when there weren't any Indiana Jones communities out there!. It's a place for fans old and new alike to share stories/news/videos and images for our favourite archaeologist!


Dr. Henry Walton Jones, Jr.[1] was a bullwhip-toting, fedora-wearing archaeologist with overdeveloped ophidiophobia. He was most famously known as Indiana Jones or Indy, and known as Henri Defense during World War I,[2]

Born July 1, 1899 in Princeton, New Jersey, Jones' life was forever changed when he accompanied his father on a world lecture tour from 1908 to 1910. Throughout his travels, Jones encountered many important figures in history who shaped his outlook on life. In 1916, Jones quit High School and briefly joined the Mexican Revolution before spending three years fighting in World War I. Following the war, he attended the University of Chicago, where he studied under Professor Abner Ravenwood. After graduating college, Jones lived life as an archaeologist and adventurer; Though professionally he was a college professor, Jones continued to travel the world. He found numerous famous artifacts throughout his career, including the Sankara Stones, the Ark of the Covenant, the Holy Grail, and one of the crystal skulls.
