Since the war, Indy has had more than his share of adventure, and been involved in recovering The Heart of the Dragon in China, The Sankara Stones from the Temple of Doom at Pankot Palace in India, The Ark of the Covenant from Tanis, and The Holy Grail from Alexandretta.
Unfortunately, Indys knack for locating artifacts doesn't extend to retaining posession - Indy so far has nothing but stories to show for his work. Indy will be up to his greatest challenge yet when he becomes involved in a race against time for...The Fountain of Youth!
Now Marcus makes use of Indys unique talents to fill out the collections of his museum. An adventurer in his own youth, Marcus has mostly retired from fieldwork, though he still lectures from time to time as a guest speaker in Indys class.Though sometimes forgetful, Marcus is still a sharp individual - it wasn't that long ago that he himself was raiding the tombs of fallen Pharoahs to bring the mysteries of the past to light! When Marcus is drawn into one final adventure, his fate will force Indy to make desperate decisions in a race against time and the forces of evil....
Disdaining fieldwork and careful study, Crishaws methods are equivalent to a bull in a china shop - sloppy, expensive, and dangerous. Combining incompetence with intense greed, Crishaws only interest is in fortune and glory - and his superiors at the university have taken notice.
Warned that unless he shapes up his act, he'll be standing in the bread lines, Crishaw is desperate to make a name for himself in academic circles, and fair play will not deter him from his goal.

When a new discovery is brought to his attention, he believes that he is one step closer to bringing about Hitlers terrifying vision of the future....
Growing up on a Kansas farm taught Shelly the importance of hard work, perseverence...and driving a hard bargain. Knowing that her skills and independent spirit would be stifled in her little Kansas town, Shelly's mother used the severence package provided by the US Government to send Shelly to school to pursue an education.
Her fiery disposition makes her popular, if somewhat unusual. Hardly the soft-spoken lady, Shelly is very clear about what she wants: Equal treatment among her peers regardless of her gender, and a certain archaeology professor.
