Another week, another issue of Tomb Raided. And what a busy week it’s been. Not just here at The Archaeology of Tomb Raider but all over the TR fan community. The TR fan community is nothing if not dedicated.. 🙂
Before we look at what others have been up to over the past week, here’s a brief recap of some of the recent posts you may have missed here at The Archaeology of Tomb Raider:
- Lara’s Travels: Strahov District, Prague – A look at the real-life Strahov district, which was briefly seen in Angel of Darkness.
- Rise of the Tomb Raider Will Be at E3 2015 – This is self-explanatory..
- Rise of the Tomb Raider Concept Art – Pre-E3 Collection – A gallery of Rise concept art released thus far.
And now, without further ado, let’s take a look at what others have been creating and tweeting this week.

“The Depths” was one of the artworks that was spotlighted during the Tomb Raider 15th Anniversary celebrations back in 2012 and it remains a fan favourite. You can learn more about d’Errico’s work and her thoughts on the TR franchise by reading the interview over at Guns & Grapple!

Sometimes, when I feel like laughing non-stop for about a minute and a half, I'll look at how I used to draw arms... http://t.co/soFdW0UUUs—
