This May, Indiana Jones puts on his fedora, grabs his bullwhip and goes in search of a legendary artifact in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It promises to be one of the most exciting, action-packed movies in years, designed to entertain and thrill audiences.
Beyond the thrills, though, there’s a fascinating legend behind the object Indy is seeking.
