The archaeologist appeared in Japanese comics which are one of the contemporary popular cultures at many works. In the 1980s, the number of the works increased a little. And while the archaeologist had appeared in SF comics or occult comics at the first half, it becomes in the second half, an archaeologist came to appear in comics full of gags, action comics, adventure comics, etc. Moreover, the archaeologist character of the 1980s is not necessarily the middle-aged man, not wore the suit, and not the stereotyped Safari look. Some character similar to an actual archaeologist, some character is subject to the influence of the movie “Indiana Jones series”, and female archaeologist character has appeared. The image of archaeologist was diversified. Thus, the comics work of the 1980s in which archaeologist appeared, has a different tendency from the comics work of the 1970s.
