Wayback

compounding; adjective
ancient, long-forgotten, as if one is reaching “way back” into the past to bring up relics from a previous era
 
Almost always used in tandem with the word machine, as if one was time traveling. The compound of way-back is used almost as a substitute for time, so one could bring something out of the past courtesy of the wayback machine.
Etymology : Compound formed from way and back
