I think that coin was tossed in there by someone affiliated with the show. Just my two cents. Not at all saying there is nothing on the Island as I think there is. I just think the coin was a plant.

Well, looks like there's gonna be some extra supervision this season...


Oak Island treasure hunt requires archeologist The province has told two Americans whose treasure hunting on Oak Island is the basis of a reality television series to hire an independent archeologist because of items they have handed over to the Nova Scotia Museum. Chester-St. Margaret’s MLA Denise Peterson-Rafuse says this shows that legislation to protect artifacts on the island isn’t strong enough and an archeologist should already be on site. Link

I saw a few episodes the other night. I wasn't that impressed with the show, but I was obsessed with this story in all the cheap pulp mystery books when I was just a lad. And I'll admit, if I happen to see it is on, I'll probably be tuning in again.

Think this "Search for Giants" is going to be good as well. Saw this guy on youtube - it was pretty good.

Personally, I think the premise makes for a ripping good yarn. It's just that History Channel way of padding a half hour show with previews and reviews to stretch it to an hour that makes me nuts. I've stood at the bottom of the causeway and seriously considered the severity of Nova Scotia's trespass laws...wimped out and went for a lobster roll instead. This stuff is cool!

The one strange thing they found is coconut fiber dating back to 1200-1400 AD.

If the history is right the viking 1000 AD then Christoper Columbus in 1492 were the first Europeans to find north America.

This means someone else came between 1200-1400 AD and there is now Evidence that shows it..

I still believe the Egyptians also came to south or central America from the coc aine traces found in mummies.

That leaves room for the Clovis people to be Solutrean people that also have come from Europe.

I've read things about Oak Island years ago and the point that keeps coming back to me is that someone went to a lot of effort to build the pit with all the wood working and traps. I would find it hard to believe someone would go to all that trouble unless something very valuable was buried there.

Back then I don't think they were into practical jokes, but as to what might be down there who knows.

If you intended to come back for it, there must have been a relatively easy way to get it out. Burying something 150 feet deep with all those booby-traps sounds like something you'd do to something you never wanted to see again.

In the 13th century nearly 10,000 returning scandanavian crusaders, set out from ports in Spain and Portugal for home and never made it back.
It's from this period that you find the anomalous runestones along navigable rivers in the Mississippi drainages.
There are unsubstantiated reports of survivors telling of being blown off course and saling along an unknown land before making it home.
We know that scandanavians made it to NA in the 10th cent., we also know that scandanavians continued to visit NA well into the 13th century, for lumber and such.
It was during the 13th cent. that the "new" scandanavian monarchies finally brought the scandanavians under the Christian umbrella.
Due to the new pious rulers and their taxation schemes, many settlers of the western lands "fudged" their place of residence to avoid paying taxes on the lumber and furs they brought back to Europe.
The people of the western lands did their best to stay out of the limelight , as they had not all embraced Christianity, in fact at one point the King of Denmark dispatched his bishop to root put the heretics.

Well, we are getting new info on early visits from the Norse: Evidence of Early Metalworking in Arctic Canada
but there wasn't a lot of lumber to be had.

There is still no evidence of their presence south of L’Anse aux Meadows...beyond a butternut found on site.

Whats hilarious is all the off cuff posts here, mercy, do some research instead of shooting from the hip.

I think the show is cool as reality TV can get. Unfortunately it is reality TV and we have no clue if they will really find anything or not, its the nature of the beast. Some shows nothing really happens because sometimes in real life treasure hunting, nothing really happens ! They still got to do the show, you got to accept that going in, record it and fast forward for pete sake .

It would be interesting to know how much the show is covering their lossses, my guess is they are still really upside down, but who knows.

There is that al capone vault dread, but there also could have been something really cool in that vault. Again, you have to be willing to accept that going in.

JohnnyC,
Thanks for the link, I know that physical evidence is very sparce and yes there is not much timber to be had up north, but in that reality is where the evdience does lie, tax records of the 13th cent. danish kings. People were paying taxes on lumber coming from greenland,iceland?.If the lumber wasnt coming from either of those places nor was it coming from Newfoundland, so that only leaves the lands further south. We must also remeber that the scandanavians werent fully chritianised at this point and many of the people in iceland and greenland were pagans, and not very keen on having the king and his church all up in their business. So, there was an impetuous to keep the knowledge of new lands from the authorities. These trips to the new world werent large settlement building expeditions, but small family ones with one or two or maybe three boats, that spent the summer cutting timber from small coastal camps. They would have left a very small footprint on the land. There is a blog out there by a danish historian that lays it out pretty well, with official and civilian documents that back up his theory.

I watched the first season and I believe there is something down in that shaft, but I refuse to watch any more of these shows. They're dragging out what should be a cut and dried excavation of the main shaft where that stone tablet was discovered.

They should strip mine the thing and send in divers if necessary. I think the issue may be funding.

Yeah, but they don't even know where that shaft is. The island has been torn up so much by previous digs and collapses and refills that the exact position of the main shaft was lost long ago.

Of course. Without knowing what, if anything, is down there, you might end up spending millions of dollars -- which they already have -- on nothing. Not a good investment.

I admit I'm hooked on the show but the reality show aspect of it is driving me mad. Every time it seems like they're on an interesting lead, something conveniently comes up that prevents them from following up on it.

Something tells me this show is going to end with them finding definitive "proof" that there is a treasure buried in the money pit but right when they're about to dig either the government is going to suddenly step in and pass legislation making it illegal for them to dig it up or they'll suddenly get superstitious "ooo the Oak Island curse oh noooo!" and decide that they need to let the spirits of those who died trying to find the treasure rest in peace by leaving it alone and not digging it up.
