This should be an interesting show. I hope they delve into all the possibilities & not get stuck on just the most popular theories. I love the History channel. Thanks for sharing

The Curse of Oak Island, a new documentary series on History (USA), will follow the current efforts of two brothers, Rick and Marty Lagina, and their partners to find the legendary treasure rumored to have been buried on the tiny Canadian island hundreds of years ago by unknown people. The series will also incorporate historical footage of past searchers as well as dramatic re-creations of infamous events to chronicle the evidence, the mystery and all the lore that have kept people hunting for treasure on Oak Island since 1795.

I don't believe there is anything special about Oak Island other then
the amounts of Money wasted there digging & Re-digging the same holes
over & over.
But Thanks ! If i remember it when the Time comes to set my DVR,
I'll give it a look

I will be watching, I still believe that there IS something of value there, why else would there be all those channels, they serve no other purpose. Also, it is one of the Treasure Legend places that I have actually been to, and walked with my own two feet. :-)

For those that believe there is still a Templar Treasure in the Money Pit, you must also believe in the Easter Bunny. Yes there was a man made pit 90' deep and yes there was wood supports every 10' and yes they found charco and coconut fibers . The Templar Treasure was their once but its gone. Nothing has been found in the last 500 years except artifacts placed their by diggers to raise money. The owners spent $15 million to buy Oak Island and they will be the last ones to admit nothing is there until they make their money back. Could the Treasure be in New Ross, NS or in a sunken shipwreck in the Delaware River is the real question. We are working at both sites and we will post what we find by June.

on the other hand, I believe the wood supports every 10'
and charco and coconut fibers, were from past Treasure Hunters,
along with everything else found.
the so called tunnels feeding water into the pit are as natural
as the underground rivers & feeders throughout the world.
and at some point Treasure Hunters dug into one.
My reasoning , even a Pirate or "Templer " would have wanted to retrieve anything they buried,
with the least amount of prying eyes. some will argue the pirate could shoot the
slaves/cohorts after the retrieval but remember. black powder Guns needed to be reloaded after each shot.
If you had 10 diggers to silence, how many would you be able to off before
someone says "there is more of us then him"
also Life spans back then were half of what they are now.
how many natural life spans past through the oak island story.
and if your talking a Templer hiding something by Hocus Pocus.
Aliens or a pre atlantian pre dinosaur civalization who only buried it a foot deep,
and time covered it over,
would be more believable.
I believe if there was a Treasure, or grave there,
it was dug back up in less then 20 years after it was buried.
and was only 6 feet deep.
But again, These are my beliefs & problems with these stories.
I hope I'm wrong & someone other then the people selling the fantasy
profit one day.

I also could never figure out why a treasure that you would want to someday recover would be made so hard to retrieve.
spent some time searching for info and found this
I agree with this guy 100%............because it makes a whole lot more sense then burying something 130' deep ...........and exactly how did they dig that deep and not encounter the flooding problems in the first place.
The wooden barriers,coconut fibers,charcoal,personal items,pieces of dishes and even "the flooding trench"........is all explained and makes perfect sense.
There never was anything in the Money Pit on Oak Island to find.

The smoking gun for this being an inverted Viking ship is........they found an Viking age anchor very close to the original pit.
the "flooding shaft" was uncovered is exactly where the mast of the ship would be and also the wooden platforms had a 10' gap on a Viking ship just as in the money pit.
All evidence points to the Money Pit being a Viking Longship.

Too long to watch at this time, But jumping forward I was able to follow his
talk, & that makes perfect sense to me Thanks

unless the ship was placed there over the treasure......

Things like this make life interesting.

Hey all, forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't these shows already recorded and in the can waiting to be aired? The search is already over and if anything had been found, it would be in the news already, right?
It's like those finding bigfoot shows, if they had discovered a bigfoot while filming it would be have been reported by now.

Cool, hope you're right. I would rather see an authentic Viking ship then a box of the same old same old loot.
