      Meet the REAL Young Indiana Jones
      FOX News [USA], October 23, 2009

      Young Indiana Jones was a good story. But the real thing is even better.
      Meet Andrew Du. Buried deep in the sand of a remote spit called Koobi
      Fora hides a treasure trove of artifacts tracing back to the beginnings
      of humankind. Found on the eastern side of Kenya's Lake Turkana, the
      site is a prime spot for paleontological research -- and there we
      uncovered a new nonfictional adventurer, in the flesh. Step aside,
      Harrison Ford: Andrew Du is the real young Indiana Jones. Du, 22, earned
      his bachelor's degree in evolutionary anthropology at Rutgers
      University. Since then he's spent the past three summers in Africa
      uncovering a trail of rare, 1.5-million-year- old human footprints.
      Garnering media coverage worldwide, these findings from Rutgers' Koobi
      Fora Field School yielded key information about the soft-tissue anatomy
      of the oldest human-like foot, information that could not be verified by
      fossilized bones alone.
