  • There are 32 (?) marked farm plots on the island. There is no deep water to build a dock, or get a large vessel in. So, to get building materials in and various crops off you build a slipway. The cargo is loaded on a shallow water barge-like craft which is pushed up or down the slipway for loading or offloading. Then pulled to or from the vessel waiting offshore. The only suitable cove to shelter the offload/onload from weather is where the swamp is, so they built a rough stony path along the edge to keep material from bogging down in the mud. Once up on the spine of the island, they were easily moved left or right to get to/from the original 32 homestead/farms. There is no mystery here. None. None at all. Everything they have uncovered is exactly what you'd need to support 32 farms on an island with shallow water surrounding it in the 18th century.

    • Really? Criticism? How do you know they’ve missed the treasure? They have to do the archeology properly or the Canadian government won’t let them dig.Just because they own the property means nothing.Don’t watch, but don’t be negative so those of us who absolutely love the show have to listen to you complain.

    • Quit watching! Negative comments are just rude. The time, money and findings are overwhelming. The Fellowship of the Dig are on a scientific track to discovery, not only the truth of what’s gone on over the centuries, but hopefully as successfully as possible. As I’ve stated before, if they went in and started tearing it apart as people did in the past, the Canadian Government would shut them down, whether they own the property or not. This has become more than a treasure hunt, it’s an archeological dig now, very relevant to North American History.

    • Not actors. And no. But there is the possibility the producers had them re-find things though, for better camera angles or better reactions. I believe "Battlefield Recovery" was called out for that.

  • Its amazing how many people have watched this the whole time and think they haven't found anything... This whole show is a painting and the image is SO MUCH clearer now than ever before thanks to these guys. I remember learning about Oak Island 20+ years ago and wondering what it was for/if it was real and these guys have proved everything and more already. Obviously, the "booty" will be awesome when they find it(whatever it ends up being), but the history and real connections that have been uncovered by them are contributing to much more history than just the history of Oak Island. The work done here has been incredible and is, to me, just as valuable as the treasure everyone else is waiting for.
