As for Oak Island Mystery, which I think youre referring to, I got bored with that show in about 5 minutes. Nothing ever happens.
Oak Island’s New season:
I know, let’s dig over there!.....................
For me, just getting the stuff tested that they find in the spoils is interesting. Having the items studied to see what they actually are, and possibly dating them is progress to me. People have been digging there for about 200 years. Modern treasure hunting isn't perfect, or fool proof. It's a process of methodically excavating old and new sites, and that takes time since they are only able to dig during certain times of the year, and they are hampered by government laws regarding archaeological sites. They have found things, specifically remnants of past human existence in those areas...such things as human bone from two individuals who weren't native to the area, found at great depth.
#4 they dig a hole then nothing is found then on next episode they dig another hole and noting is found.
They are like democrats in their search for Trump russian collusion.
I absolutely love it!
As a kid I read about the Oak Island mystery when I read a Reader's Digest in 1965. I can still remember I was at my friend, Douglas Attaway's house, when I read it. It made quite an impression.
Well, I found out tons of kids had read that same article including one of the searchers leading this current attempt: Rick Lagina (who talked his money bags brother, Marty, into financing his childhood dream).
They started in 2006, but things went extraordinarily slow until History Channel agreed to make a reality show out of their chase. It finally became the Highest rated show on the channel and now that History Channel is kicking in, Marty and his investors have loosened the purse strings and sophisticated and heavy equipment have been brought to bear.
Last year they found a lead cross that looks like in came from the Templars and recovered two bones that carbon date from the 17th century and belonged to someone from Europe and the other from the Middle East.
This year they have located an iron bolt that one expert believes may be from a Roman Pilum(!) and they created a coffer dam that has allowed them to excavate "Smith's Cove" (long believed to be the source of sea water that flooded the original Money Pit and has foiled all attempts to date).
Under the floor of Smith's Cove they recently uncovered a concrete wall in an area that was always underwater, even during low tide.
Now I have never heard rumours that the Romans ever made deep water craft capable of crossing the Atlantic, but, boy howdy, it's fun to speculate!
