Season 9 of The Curse of Oak Island is well underway.
In the episode tonight they showed more of the same.
The location of the loose material in the core samples seems to line up with some of the seismic results and may help determine where the large cans will be located.
An underwater archaeologist believes that some of the pieces are parts of a ship.
There seem to be two clusters of C14 dates. Some that are earlier by 50 – 100 years. My thoughts are that perhaps this is evidence of a ship that had been in service for many years and then later renovations or repairs were made to the ship accounting for the later dates. Or, perhaps the later dates come from remains of smaller watercraft used to load or unload a ship that may have been built at a later time.
All in all though this was an episode that had more of the same as what has been seen in recent episodes.
