Emma, a student archaeologist, on a dig at the edge of Namibia's Etosha National Park has discovered a body dating back to the country's liberation war of the 1980s.
The remains of the airman, identified as Hudson Brand, are a key piece of a puzzle that will reveal the location of a modern day buried treasure - a find people will kill for.
