Shadows of a Lost Time

An archaeologist on a team excavating a 400-year-old pueblo in 1934 New Mexico has visitors from the past who make him rethink his career. This is a ghost story if you want it to be, a love story if you want it to be, and a self-discovery story if you want that — all in the context of the jazz age soon after the end of the Indian Wars.
