In the 1930's Jones became teacher of archaeology at Marshall College in Bedford, Connecticut. In 1935, Indiana Jones brought the stolen Shankara Stone back to the Indian village it belonged to, restoring the vertility of the land. 1936, he searched and retrieved the legendary Ark of the Covenant. During this search, he reunited with Marion Ravenwood, but the couple split up again, as Jones left Marion one week before their weeding. In 1938, Indy retrieved the Cross of Coronado from Panama Hat Man, and in the same year, he and his father discovered the Holy Grail.
During the Cold War, Jones encountered the Soviet agent Irina Spalko. Afterwards, he embarked on a search for the Crystal Skull of Akator, reuniting with Marion in the process and getting to know their son, Mutt Williams.
