The University of Chicago has determined the source of a mystery package that the school received addressed to movie hero Indiana Jones.

The school received a replica of the journal from the movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark" that was addressed to Henry Walton Jones, Jr. -- better known as Indiana Jones. The Chicago Tribune's Red Eye reports that it turns out the journal was inside a package that was inside another package on its way from Guam.

An eBay seller in Guam was sending the journal to the highest bidder in Italy. But the smaller package with the University of Chicago address fell out of the bigger one. The U.S. Postal Service apparently sent the smaller package on for delivery to Chicago.
