‘The Curse of Oak Island’ Season 6 Episode 13: Recap
The mysterious concrete wall contains no metal and it’s set under the low tide level, the team believes that it might have contained engineering techniques first used in the 3rd century BC by the Ancient Romans. The team has also uncovered rubber pipes, which possibly date from the mid 19thcentury when Charles Goodyear refined the substance. Could these pipes date back from the 19th century or is it yet another mystery the team has to solve?
Later the same day, Rick Lagina calls a meeting in the war room to update his brother about the newest developments at Smith’s Cove. The team struggles to understand the meaning of the two pipes in the concrete wall. So, they have to continue with the excavation in order to find the answers they need.
Moreover, they decide to consult Dan Blankenship, who they believe can provide answers to their questions. Nevertheless, Dan isn’t able to provide an answer, so they end up having more questions than answers.
Back at the Money Pit, the team continues with the excavation at the shaft which they believe intersected the original Money Pit. They also hope that the Vault might also move back into its path. They discover wood which might, in fact, be the legendary box which contains the treasure. The team gets excited by the possibility that they might have located the Chapple vault.
The team finds an important clue which could prove that they are closer than ever to the mysterious vault. So, the team goes to see two historians and talk about their recent discoveries. One of the parchments seems to be leather, while the other is a piece of old paper.
The next day, while the team is on the spot continuing the excavation, a special guest, Randall Sullivan, arrives. He gives the Lagina brothers the first two copies of his new book and they have a very interesting discussion. Sullivan suggests that he believes that is another flood tunnel on the south shore.
The rest of the team discovers a piece of bone and another parchment which suggests that old books can be part of the Oak Island treasure. If the piece they found ends up being a bone, then they can test who was there.
In a nutshell, the team’s effort is all about a search for truth and solving a mystery by applying real science. One thing is for sure, the Lagina brothers and their partners don’t wonder anymore whether something of historical significance happened on Oak Island. As their search continues, we cannot help but wonder what they will find.
