A chance discovery in the treacherous waters off Indonesia reveals a seabed covered in gold, silver and ceramics. It may prove the existence of a global seafaring culture, centuries before we imagined possible.

This documentary for National Geographic explores the journey of the operation to salvage these treasures and the possibilities leading to this ancient tragedy.
