ENDURANCE WEEK - MEET JAMES WHITMAN
Copyright 2013 www.tombraiderchronicles.com

[ February 21 2013 ]

Today sees the introduction of Dr. James 'Jim' Whitman as part of Endurance Week, where a new character from Tomb Raider will be fleshed out every day. Dr. Whitman is a lead archaeologist, author and documentarian on board the Endurance. Supporting artwork from Endurance Week also available.

"Dr. Whitman studied at Harvard and is both an expert in Archaeology and Anthropology. He also took his PHD at Cambridge University in the UK and taught at many schools around the world. However, over the last few years Whitman has moved into TV series and documentary making and became quite a popular presenter with a successful range of tie-in books. This has made him both a golden-boy and a black-sheep to the archaeological community. The former for increasing exposure and interest in archaeology and the latter for 'selling his soul to TV'.

"Dr. Whitman has had a bit of a run of bad fortune and only recently emerged from a messy divorce. His TV series is also in danger of not being renewed unless he finds some new and exciting angle; a problem that he's not keen to share with the rest of the crew.

"He privately hopes that the trip will give him material for a new TV series and, along with Sam's footage, the commissioning editors will come crawling to him.
