Digging for Oak Island Treasure Resumes
Some theories as to who built it and why include pirates burying their gold, privateers burying gold or manuscripts of Francis Bacon/Shakespeare, and my personal favourite, the Knights Templar artifacts excavated from the Holy land, including (but not limited to) the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant. If it is manmade, the Knights Templar/Freemasons would probably have the necessary engineering skills to be able to build it.
I've always been fascinated with unsolved mysteries. I have known about Oak Island since I was a young child and I am so pleased to hear they're digging there again. I hope you'll all find this interesting and keep tabs on the progress. I know I will.
Initial dig - 8 March 2008
World's greatest treasure hunt has begun!
Oak Island Treasure has been informed that the hunt for treasure has begun again on Oak Island. This is the latest attempt to recover riches on the small island in Nova Scotia which has had treasure hunters baffled for over 200 years.
Our source reports that Oak Island Tours Inc have started their investigation by digging a series of holes which, according to Oak Island author, D'Arcy O'Connor, are several hundred feet north of the famed Money Pit.
This original site is where, as legend has it, a group of boys on a fishing expedition to the island discovered disturbed earth beneath a block and tackle hanging from an Oak Tree back in 1795.
Often called 'the world's greatest treasure hunt' due to the millions of dollars which have been spent on trying to overcome the ingenious set of traps devised to protect what some believe may be the biggest repository of treasure the world has seen.
It would seem efforts are concentrated further north than the original Money Pit as three holes have been dug - one to 160 feet and two more to a huge depth of 300 feet.
This initial exploration has not resulted in any significant finds, but digging is to continue very soon as more of the island is probed to try and uncover its mysterious past.
