The mysteries of Oak Island have been searching for over two centuries so far, but they are yet to be solved. Marty plans to do ten times more work in the season 6. Uncovering history will certainly gain more success.
1. The Medieval Lead Cross originated from Southern France within the area of Knights Templar influence
The lead cross was found in Smith’s Cove by Gary Drayton and Rick. Rick and Marty believe it is the most meaningful item found so far. It was tested using laser abrasion at the University of New Brunswick. After it was found that the lead cross does not originate from North America, it has been sent to Tobias Skowronek, the geochemist at the German Museum in Germany. He discovered that the cross is from pre-15th century, and is from Europe, to be exact the area of two mountains, the Cévennes, and the Montagnes Noires, in Southern France. This Medieval lead cross has an association with the Templar-influenced region in France, which makes it the most historic find in North America.
2. Seismic scanning technology was used to map the Money Pit Area
Seismic scanning has shown as a technology that gives highly accurate results, so the team invited Eagle Canada to use that technology. They placed 1,500 dynamite charges in 2-foot deep holes, to map the Halifax Tunnel area. This much of a deep scanning has never done before, and the test was successful.
3. There is a possibility that a star map was used to indicate important points on Oak Island by the Free Masons
The team invited a new consultant, aerospace engineer, Travis Taylor, to help them figure out ways of mapping the underground Money Pit area. Taylor pointed out the possibility of the Free Masons denoting where they left treasures. He also wanted to try out radon gas testing methods.
4. A new tunnel may exist in Lot 24
British army artifacts from the time of the Ameican Revolution have been found at Lot 24, including the uniform buttons, musket balls, ramrod for loading muskets, and early rifles from the late 1700s to early 1800s. Metal detecting continues at Lot 24. Gary Drayton also discovered bone fragments, pottery shards, and possible door latch. Historic accounts claim that Portuguese, French, and British were visiting the island, but in the case found bone fragments turn out to be human, it could provide some evidence about who had been on Oak Island. After all that has been found, archeologist Laird Niven has applied for an archeological excavation permit.
5. The 90 Foot Stone may have finally been found and a second stone may mean Vikings have been there
The original 1803 stone that was found in the pit, was discussed by the team and Laird. The stone was found in the bookbindery basement by researchers Jack, Doug, and Charles, and it had carved letters L and N on itself.
At the Money Pit area, there was a second stone found. LIDAR scan was run on it, just like on the first one. Strange runic markings on the stone are of Scandinavian origin, so there might be a possibility that Oak Island was visited by Vikings.
