    Post Newfoundland fishing

    Based on recent research, it is believed that fishing fleets from Scandinavia, Ireland, England had reached the fishing waters off Nova Scotia as early as the 800's, long before Columbus sailed. These fisherman sailed their fishing cogs along a route skirting Iceland and Greenland to N. America using routes originated by Vikings. Is it not possible that they then set up fishing outposts on the coasts to overwinter and also to process their catch? Possibly this is what is being found on Oak Island, and would be consistent with discoveries of 500 year old artifacts and construction ( but so far not a single piece of treasure). Why has this contact with the New World not been reported? It is because the fishermen wanted to keep the knowledge of these rich fishing banks to themselves without government influence ( and taxes). Slipways, attempts to modify beaches and the construction of structures related to fish processing camps would explain most if not all of what has been found so far.

    There is no doubt that the French, Portugese and Basque fishermen knew about the Grand Banks before Columbus reached San Salvadore. It is likely they landed frequently to dry fish and collect freshwater and other supplies. There is even evidence of trade with the Inuits.

    And the Scandanavians were at L'Anse aux Meadows as early as 900AD . . . likely other sites along the coast as well.

    As far as Oak Island: there have been 28 groups digging, drilling, mining since 1795 and, so far as anyone knows, nothing of value or much interest has ever been found. Only the History Channel has found a way to prostitute it for more rewards as pseudo-history for a reality hungry TV audience.

    Perhaps it was an Ancient Alien landing site?

    Yes!... Things found on Oak Island represent a "History" of artifacts left behind.

    Hope to see more of your "Theories" and "Posts" here on TreasureNet!

    It is FAR more likely my ancestors were in Nova Scotia before Columbus discovered the New World, than it is the Templars buried a treasure on Oak Island.
