After an expedition to the pyramids, T. E. Lawrence invites Indy to the excavation of Ka’s tomb, where he meets his friend Rashid, assistant to archeologist Howard Carter.

In Mexico 1916, Indy is captured by Mexican revolutionaries, but is rescued by a Belgian called Remy. As Indy gets involved in the war, he recognises Dimitrius, who is collaborating with the US. After hearing how hypocritically the revolutionaries act, Indy and Remy decide to leave but not before Indy fights and defeats Dimitrius, to recover the jackal.
