The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles


What happens when you send Indiana Jones into the First World War?

In this episode we are joined by Thomas Riddle.

Thomas runs the website (which aims to provide teachers with resources to integrate everyone’s favourite archaeologist into the classroom) to discuss the 1990s TV series ‘The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles’.

Along the way we discuss the show as an educational tool, the many historical figures that appear in the series, and the importance of learning foreign languages!
