  • Why doesn't someone on the team to go visit a square rigged museum ship? There are several that come to mind, "Vasa" I think is the oldest, but the "Constitution", "Victory" and several others exist on both sides of the pond. The point of this is that they can look closely examine them for the little details of the iron work, the woodwork and and other things of the construction. They may get a clue as to what they are finding...

  • There were fifty plus farms/homesteads on that island (look at the map they keep flashing) and the only suitable cove to onload and offload cargo abuts the swamp. So yeah, those fifty families built a slipway, some kind of pier and a rocky road (because of the swampy soil) to move everything from building stones to oxen off boats and send potatoes, cabbages and other products back out. The original money pit was likely a cooperative well to supply fresh (unsalty) water to the inhabitants, not an elaborate treasure pit. When you get down to a layer of porous soil, salt water is going to seep in. That's likely what happened to the original well, and also what happened to subsequent digs. There's no mystery here.

  • Sarcasm comes so easy to some people. Oak Island is mega souce of History! There has been activity there from the 1600's....that road may have been built for pirates to unload treasure....then later on used by others. Seems like Oak Island could have more than one treasure. Even the drilling is finding new unknown tunnels. Tunbels may have started shallow then deepened to carve out a hiding place.....digging straight down would not be the only way to create a hiding place. Interesting finds document how life was conducted in different eras! We learn from history! I will not appologize for enjoying this show!

For those of us who appreciate the time it takes to meticulously unearth so many sites scientifically, we are patient. Patient. Looking forward to getting the whole story.

  • Pretty sure that swamp was a ship repair cove! Pine kiln close by, rock slipway to keep boats elevated without mud! Maybe pirates repaired their ships there and hid their treasure at same time? Could of used flood tunnels to add and release sea water to get to undersides of ship! Not sure if they were working with the tides but seems possible!

    Satanic PanicSatanic Panic28 ditë më parë
    • The paved area was constructed when the military had a facility on the island. The reading of the very old organic matter on top of the paved area was caused by the spoil excavated from the interior of the island washing into the swamp. There are no flood tunnels. Everywhere they dig down, they strike water. The island is made up of glacial till and water passes through it. There is always water in the bottom of a water well, because when water is removed, water seeps in through the soil. Water wells don't have flood tunnels. It is called the water table.

Also, to say that rusted iron is "like nothing I've ever seen before" just tells me how much of a bust this dig site is.
