Yes, the University of Chicago does have a rather good reputation when it comes to archaeology and linguistics, particularly those of the Near-to-Middle East.
We have a member here, Gregoire Defense, who is about as close as we come to having the real Indiana Jones at the Raven...he went (goes?) there, and could probably tell you more, if he were to return.
