James Adovasio is the Burt Reynolds of American archeology (as they spell it…). Countless students at Mercyhurst College have that poster of him on their walls, shirtless in a trench, his bitchin’ Camaro parked nearby. Dr. Adovasio specializes in perishable artifacts, and he must be in love with us because he’s melted our hearts.

Carl Blegen is the patron saint of Mediterranean archaeology and part of the Holy Trinity of beefcake archaeologists, attaining such heights by digging in Corinth, Troy, Pylos, and elsewhere. With a face like a smoked ham and a reputation for being an amorous omnivore, we say “yes” when asked if he was smoking in bed. We like our Carls hot.

You guys!!! We are in such HOT water with Slovenian underwater archaeologist Andrej Gaspari. We don’t know if he’s just found the Sword of Gryffindor and don’t care if he had to kill Ron Weasley to do it. This, ladies and gents, is bona fide archaeology beefcake.

Yes! Our favourite “naked archaeologist” is Simcha Jacobovic. He hosted The Naked Archaeologist programme for three seasons in Canada until he found Jesus (literally). Although he’s won an Emmy for investigative journalism, he’d much rather have won your heart. He’s certainly won ours <3

Historian Ian Morris helped found the Stanford Archaeology Center and has chaired Stanford&#8217;s Classics Department. His new book, &#8216;War! What is it Good For? Conflict and the Progress of Civilization from Primates to Robots&#8217;, is out in 2014. So what is war good for? According to the advance copy we received at Archaeology Beefcake, it&#8217;s good for lots and lots of makeup sex.

Zahi Hawass is Egypt&#8217;s former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs (of the heart), but he&#8217;ll always be Mummy-Chaser-in-Chief to us. Hawass has his own line of hats (Pharrell, take note), and his own line of clothes just like Jay Z. In fact, we&#8217;re pretty sure the &#8216;Z&#8217; in &#8216;Jay Z&#8217; stands for &#8216;Zahi&#8217;. There&#8217;s no question that Hawass loves Egypt, which reminds us of that 1984 hip-hop touchtone, &#8220;Egypt, Egypt&#8221; by The Egyptian Lover himself (aka Greg Broussard): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjFs9CPGhts

Archaeology Beefcake could blog until the end of time about Phil Harding, one of Time Team's hotties-in-residence and human mullet (business in the front, party in the back). For the record, he keeps his hat on at ALL times, but you can grab fist-fulls of his Fabio-like locks if you're into that sort of thing. God knows we are.
