Profs and Pints presents: «Meet the Real Indiana Jones,» with Justin M. Jacobs, associate professor of history at American University and author of Indiana Jones in History: From Pompeii to the Moon. (Tickets $10.)

Grab your hat and start the plane. It's time for a scholarly adventure around the world with Justin Jacobs, an expert on the history of archeology who teaches a course dealing with the popular Indiana Jones film franchise. He'll discuss the relationship between the Indiana Jones films and famous explorers and archeologists throughout history, pointing out unleapable gaps between film and fact. He'll also ask whether Jones and the real-life artifact hunters that preceded him really were the good guys, or instead were motivated by ugly racist and cultural stereotypes.

You won't leave the Bier Baron Tavern with any Arks or idols, but you will walk out with a much better understanding of archeology and how treasures found their way to our local museums. (Please, no snakes.)
