This island is a paradise for treasure hunters. It is filled with mysterious details and stories and ever since the 1800s, there have been many dig outs and investigations.
At the moment what is being hunted for and is currently on the tv show that runs on the History channel (The Curse of Oak Island) is showing the most potential up until now and what is actually in the Money Pit and some other important places on the island, because of some important artifacts that have been found.
After years of doing their job (treasure hunting), it looks like they are very close to actually finding treasure on this legendary island. Now, we will look through all of the objects that they have found so far on Oak Island.
1. Knights Templar cross
This treasure is one of the most astonishing ones that have ever been found on this island. It was located in the previous season on Smith’s Cove in a pile of mud and rocks. After doing some test they concluded the cross does not come from North America. After making this discovery, Gary Drayton said: “That’s really old. This is the type of thing I’d expect to find in Europe. When I first saw it I thought, that looks Medieval — a Medieval cross. I mean, this is old. I would say it is somewhere between 1200 and 1600.”
2. The gold brooch
3. Rhodolite Garnet brooch
This discovery was connected to the lost jewels of Marie Antoinette, as some believe. It was found in lot 8 during season 5, it took them years of digging to get to this point.
4. Iron spikes
Another find on season 6 were some iron spikes. Gary Drayton believes they are from the 1700s. They found them on the shore, that used to be the home of James Andreson, the pirate captain.
5. Other honorable mentions
Other things that have been found on Oak Island include artifacts like pottery, humans bones, bookbindings and military cuff button that they suspect come from the period between 1780 and 1820.
