What does The Artifact novel have to do with Indiana Jones and Cleopatra?
In real life, Dr. Zahi Hawass, an archeologist known for wearing an Indiana Jones style hat, believes that he has uncovered the tomb of Cleopatra. If he has (and he believes he may find Mark Anthony as well), it would be one of the most significant archeological finds of our century.
In the fictional world of The Artifact, archeologists, Sean Tyler and Jan Fisher, set out to find the tomb of another ancient lady, Sahlek. What ensues is pure fiction, but the adventure rivals the mystery surrounding the Egyptian ruler, Cleopatra.
While novels often mirror events from real life, The Artifact’s reflection on current events is purely good timing. Hmm. Maybe it’s an artifact thing. And if you’re wondering what that means … you’ll just have to read the book.
