Apparently driven to mad by the [[Crystal Skull of Akator]] to the point that he'd only communicate in [[Oxley's riddles|riddles]], Oxley gave Ravenwood a letter in a cryptic code that he had written before he was captured. With the Soviets searching for [[Akator]], they allowed Ravenwood to escape long enough so that she would get the letter to [[Indiana Jones]] to translate. Ravenwood unwittingly followed through on the plan by sending [[Marion's letter|a letter]] to her son, [[Mutt Williams]], urging him to get help from Professor Jones and enclosing Oxley's cryptic message. She also contacted Mutt by phone, indicating that she had sent him the letter, but during the phone call she was recaptured by the Soviets and the line went dead.

In the [[United States of America|US]], when Mutt received Marion's letter, he rode on [[Mutt Williams's motorcycle|his motorcycle]] to [[Bedford]] where he met Jones at the [[Bedford train station|train station]] when he was about to leave the town. He took him to [[Arnie's Diner]] and showed him the letter. After they escaped from two [[KGB]] agents who had been trailing them, the pair went to [[Indiana Jones' house|Jones's home]] in order to decipher the message.

Jones correctly interpreted the "lines only gods can read" as the [[Nazca Lines]] in [[Peru]] which can only be seen from above. However, he did not understand the reference to Orellana's cradle because [[Francisco de Orellana]] had been born in [[Spain]]. Only when he traveled with Mutt to [[Nazca]] and they found the map of the [[Chauchilla Cemetery]] on the floor of Oxley's cell at a [[Nazca sanatorium|sanatorium]], he realized that the word used for "cradle" was a general word for "resting place" and that Oxley had found [[Orellana's grave]] which had been lost for centuries. Arriving at the cemetery, they found the burial site was guarded by [[Nazca (tribe)|warriors]] who wore terrifying skull masks, thus appearing as "living dead".
