Here is my best explanation:

'indiana jones perhaps' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'loathes a corgi barking' is the wordplay.
'barking' is an anagram indicator (UK slang for mad).
'loathes'+'a'+'corgi'='loathesacorgi'
'loathesacorgi' is an anagram of 'ARCHAEOLOGIST'.
