Arte-Factual: Golden Trident (Relic Run)

In the mobile adventure Lara Croft: Relic Run, gamers have the chance to collect a number of South-East Asian artefacts in the game’s Jungle Temple level.

Lara Croft’s Jurassic World - Five Memorable Moments With Dinosaurs

Now, repeat after me: Archaeologists don’t dig dinosaurs. They. Do NOT. Dig dinosaurs.
