Oak Island – Cross Lines Mark the Spot

Season 10 of The Curse of Oak Island continues to show new discoveries and theories.

This week on Oak Island they started by showing the re-opening of the Garden Shaft to start the rehabilitation. They also took some more water samples from the Blob area.

The continued metal detecting on Lot 5 and found an old button and perhaps a piece of a scythe? The piece of metal in no way looked like what they found last week.

The team had a meeting to see some information about Sacred Geometry and how Nolan’s Cross could pinpoint the location of the Money Pit. The lines drawn intersected just near the Garden Shaft. There must have been many variations of lines tested to see how they would fit and even so not all the lines were exactly straight.

It was also intriguing that they were using feet, without much explanation as to the exact number of inches per foot they were using. There is a long history of the evolution of the length of the foot, and sometimes the length of the foot can give an approximate date. Sacred Geometry was often used by the Templars so could they have been involved?

The bush scythes would probably be just a bit later based on the metal composition that testing showed.

Right at the end of the show they showed the hammer grab tool starting to remove mud from the Garden Shaft. The rehabilitation of the shaft is now well underway.

In the preview of the next episode they showed continued work on the Garden Shaft and possibly some of the team members going below ground. There was also some excitement in the finding of treasure. However, it was not clear what type of treasure they found. They also showed a map with some of the water testing results.

It looks like it will be interesting next week.

What will they find?
