    It's an exciting new week on Oak Island!

    At the stone trail (Pirate road?), they find a piece of notched leather. It could be a bootstrap or strap to secure an important book such as the style used by a ledger from the 1500s or 1600s. Probable exciting find of earthenware. The absence of artifacts is also a quandry - how does that happen, considering the number of people required to build such a road and haul material on it.

    At the money pit, they find .... wood! Dated from 1726-1813 and 1648-1694 The top of a tunnel was found at 87.5 feet down, in bore hole C4.5, a likely continuation of C5. It was noted that they find tunnels going in every direction. With all the data they have, the money pit can't hide forever!

    On Samuel Ball's lot 25, Gary has marked a bunch of nonferrous targets with a sea of flags. They find a lead musket ball or a splash from the musket mold process. The top pocket find was the back of a pocket watch. And a single loop flat button from the 1800's.
    Thanks Mike... You reviews are much appreciated.

    I thought on the previous season they were sure of the money pit location from following up that drain to the shaft that they were sure was just beside the money pit. Oh well I am sure another searcher tunnel will lead them to more old wood and water..

    You would think they would just drill holes in the area and drop the metal detector down the holes. If there was treasure this would find it. Oh wait a minute they did that in season 5...

    Given that the stone road has been known about since at least the 1970s (and probably earlier) I guess earlier searchers found the artifacts and thew them away as having no relevance to the pit.

    So now we have to wait for the NEXT Episode the see the GOLD....

    Just cannot wait to see all the skeptics faces when they pull out of the ground the lost treasure hoard of the Knights Templar....

    So there has now been 16 episodes this season and all they have "found" is a old stone road that has been known about since at least mid last Century..

    Nothing shown this season as added anything to the known history of Oak Island.

    I was rather surprised (I shouldn't have been) at the leap that was made when the leather strap was tentatively identified as being "like" the type of strap used as a 17th-18th century book clasp - immediately it was determined to be the ledger the "Depositors" used to account all the treasure they were burying...or possibly a ship's log for the ship(s) carrying the treasure to the island. I was also rather baffled no one suggested it was from a Bible - after all, the Bible is a religious book - and the Templars were a religious Order - so Templars had Bibles - so IT MUST BE FROM A TEMPLAR BIBLE!!! MORE PROOF!!!

    Then when the metal detector drops didn't find a huge chunk of nonferrous metal, the treasure became the paper manuscripts of Shakespeare encased in Chappell's concrete vault.

    He definitely found treasure on oak Island
    Could it be?

    He signed a contract with Heritage Canada for his Heritage Wind and Gas Exploits there in Nova Scotia
    But he who knows forms, is able to grasp the unity of nature beneath the surface of materials which are very unlike. Thus is he able to identify and bring about things that have never been done before, things of the kind which neither the vicissitudes of nature, nor hard experimenting, nor pure accident could ever have actualized, nor even human thought dreamed of. And thus from the discovery of the forms flows true speculation and unrestricted operation.

    Like she said it does enough to keep everybody, even people who don't believe in the "hoax" mesmerized in that the next find might be something good...and they are always finding something...

    Spoiler for this week's show:






    In the swamp, the stone road was declared to be designed to carry heavy loads by a historian. Ancient carts were a standard width of 5 feet - so the 6 foot wide stone path would be well suited for the ox carts to haul treasure from ships to the money pit and dump it in. The Templar cross carved into a large stone at Overton, NS is likely dated from the same era as the stone road. The finds are a round metal ring, possibly a cart wheel bearing or axle brace, and a hand forged rosehead spike - similar to the rosehead spike found in borehole C1. Also a wooden stake.

    At lot 25, Gary finds a larger size copper coin, likely old. Also a fancy stick topper of some sort with a crown design.

    At the money pit, they continue to work through the ancient tunnel via exploratory drilling shafts, possibly toward the real location of the money pit.

    Thanks Mike... What a surprise I would of thought that people went to all the trouble of making a stone road to carry light things...

    Glad that historian has set me straight..

    The premise behind the view that the stone road was built to transport treasure is ludicrous.

    Sceniro

    Boat lands:

    Captain - "Now we need to bury this treasure and then leave it behind. But it is very heavy.

    Grand Poobar Knights templar - "I have a plan.. We will get the slaves to build a stone road to the place were we will bury the treasure. This will make it easier for the slaves to then carry the treasure to our secret treasure vault"

    Captain - But won't someone notice the road"

    Grand Poobar Knights templar - "It does not matter because we will booby trap the vault so no need to hide the road up to it"

    Captain - "Great idea... lets get those slaves to work on that road..."

    Scenario 2

    Captain- is following higher orders to bury treasure. Leave markers for others to use to find said treasure.
    No need to worry about "workers" coming back for it on their own as they have no idea where they are at. Spent most of trip below deck and don't know how to navigate.

    Scenario 3

    Captian- ship is breaking apart from storms. Lets slip in that cove and scuttle the ship, and bury our riches and return later for them.

    Again nothing and I don't believe they ever will find anything. A Victorian tube of lipstick. An old copper coin and more rusty metal and lots of rocks and wood.

    The road was made when they put the power poles on Oak Island before 1931. A tunnel at the Money Pit is nothing but debris placed there by Dumfield when he did his dig. They do not operate as though they are treasure hunters. They are only finding junk. Any competent treasure hunter finds more every single day with a metal detector than they have unearthed in 8 years or more. But they are cleaning up at the Bank. They are bringing in more help and more experts but the show is losing ground and they know it.
