The title for the upcoming Indiana Jones sequel was revealed earlier in the week as “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull“. Serious TDGers into their ‘hidden history’ will be familiar with the real-life controversy over the discovery (and alleged powers) of crystal skulls, perhaps the most famous of which is the Mitchell-Hedges skull (I reported earlier this year the death of Anna Mitchell-Hedges, aged 100). It will be interesting to see how much of this mythos is incorporated into the new movie, or if the crystal skull just makes for a good prop.

Update: No sooner had I posted this, when I came across this article at MTV which features Harvard lecturer Dr Marc Zender doing his best to expand on the crystal skull mythos while looking down his nose at the topic.
