Tom Felton film unearths ‘epic story’ of female archaeologist
Harry Potter star has produced Canyon Del Muerto, which tells how Ann Axtell Morris worked with Navajo people in 1920s America
He is one of the most recognisable actors in the world, known for his role as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise. But now Tom Felton wants to use his platform to spotlight someone whose historical achievements have been obscured for decades.
Felton has produced his first feature film, Canyon Del Muerto, recounting the story of Ann Axtell Morris, one of the US’s first female archaeologists, who worked with the Navajo in the 1920s to uncover North America’s earliest civilisation, the Anasazi.
