Mayan historian sues Indian Jones producer


(From The Telegraph) An archaeologist in Belize is suing the makers of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, claiming it is based on a real Mayan artifact.

Dr Jaime Awe, director of the Institute of Archaeology of Belize, claims the Central American country should get a share of the profits from the Hollywood blockbuster.

According to The Hollywood Reporter he is suing Lucasfilm, the Walt Disney Company and Paramount Pictures for using a “likeness” of the skull.

The suit claims there are four known Mayan crystal skulls, made from quartz, three of which are in museum in the UK, France and Washington DC.

The fourth is said to be with the family of a 1920s adventurer called F.A. Mitchell-Hedges in Indiana, it was claimed.
