Three pieces of colored pottery.😲 Not only that but now the road is heading in another direction. Where will it lead our intrepid treasure hunters next week? Will they find more of the broken pottery to glue together a teacup? And is there a buried tea service somewhere nearby waiting to be dug up and used. Stay tuned for next time. This episode was brought to you by NesTea. The tea that goes great with any broken or buried pottery.

  • Oak Island was the last boy's own show on television besides Deadliest Catch, but now Oak Island has finally succumbed the new cable network affirmative Action thing going on. It looks like Billy Gerhart, the jolly heavy equipment operator is gone and replaced. Season 8 is also giving a lot of air time to some new women hires. There is so much diversity on television and so many all ethnic channels, Asian, Hispanic, Black. Women make up a majority of what's on television so why do they need to take one of the only remaining male dominated and watched shows and put women on it. Would they take a show that is all women and watched by mainly women and replace them with men? This is America 2021 and nobody likes it. Hint; if you want a modern example of a country that's already gone down this road look no further than South Africa. Under the banner of equality and fairness they forced businesses to hire people based solely on their race and in the end it was only fair and equal for people of one race while the other has suffered enormously. The country is now in total decline with a rapidly declining European population.

  • Should be called the curse of " joke " island. I gave this show three years of my attention. Millions of dollars wasted only to show a shoebox full of items. I'm not saying they should give their hard earned millions away but think what could have been accomplished with what they have spent on this venture. I'm not saying they should give up or quit what they love, but what a selfish waste of what would be considered a fortune for most people. Terribly selfish.

  • The real curse is on the people who got sucked in to watching this ridiculous sham of a tv show. What a con job to get a tv show. Well we're about to find the money pit...6 yrs later... well we're about to find the money pit... 2025... were getting really close now. Look we found a rusty nail. We must be really close now. Reminds me of the movie Mrs. Doubtfire when Robin Williams is talking to the tv executive. "I wonder who is the putz that kept this guy on the air all these years." I wonder who is the guy who kept this ridiculous show on the air all these years.

  • If you have millions of dollars in treasure and want to bury it so no one will find it you WOULD NOT SPEND MONTHS BUILDING A STONE ROAD THAT LEADS DIRECTLY TO WHERE THE TREASURE IS BURRIED. Also people who bury treasure get hungry and eat food USING PLATES. It must be related to treasure. NNOOOOOOO!!! Everyone uses plates to eat and has nothing to do with treasure. Everything found they immediately relate it to treasure or tunnel digging when it's just a common everyday item.

  • Why should three pieces of broken crockery be "Stunning"? This is one of the very few finds which have not come from the metal detectorist Gary Drayton. Indeed if it had not been for the steady stream of nails and spikes, this whole series would have died years ago. When Gary first found one of these spikes, he thought it was the end off a Roman spear Pilum. Then he thought it was a crossbow bolt used by the Knights Templar!! Now, he just says 'Decking Spike' talking knowledgeably of course.

I truly hope there really is something there but it's getting to the point where i believe that they would plant an artifact just as much as they would find one right now. I've found more artifacts digging on a weekend in an farm outhouse, the show is a waste of time.

Just because they didn’t have airplanes or cars doesn’t mean they were cavemen banging rocks. They knew the stars and global positioning better than we give them credit for. Here’s another tidbit. The Aztecs had predicted the return of a “god” with a long white beard from the ocean. In the early 1500’s, Cortez showed up. What if they were recalling their first white man that appeared 200 years earlier? By then, a white man from the sea would have been a legend repeated for 8-10 generations. The coconut fibres on the Island had to come from somewhere.

    • @Stephen Bachman When digging dirt, you can never fit it all back in if they filled the pit and tunnel(s). That’s how they discovered the original money pit. It had settled and left a depression. I figure it would take about 25-30,000 cubes of rock and dirt to connect the islands and fill the swamp. About the same as a 522 ft “shaft” 5x5, and a 1000 ft “corridor” 6x6 and a large “chamber” at the end. The stone road, I swear when I zoom in, there are pick marks on them. It is definitely not all glacial till rounded by wear gathered from the beach, it looks like shattered rock mixed with natural rock you would find from digging a tunnel.
