From an entertainment perspective, this show drags and drags. Don't waste your time watching unless you enjoy disappointment. The island creeps me out now, seeing I believe in spirits and ghosts. What treasure lies beneath Oak Island? Hoping to return in the future with a more powerful force with which to relieve the city of its considerable wealth, Pizarro left two of his own men behind so that they might learn the language and customs of the natives before returning to Panama. During their meeting, Wicks produced a pen and a piece of paper and began to scribble furiously, at a blistering pace, as if his hand was guided by some sort of supernatural force. We need more of this mystery in life, makes it exciting. It is about following two men and their comrades that try the impossible, that is to lift the mystery around the money pit.
Marty suggested that they immediately dig up whatever lies below, while Rick counselled circumspection, fearing that an aggressive excavation might damage potential artifacts of historic and archaeological significance below. This enables you to watch the video without an Internet connection. There, some theorists believe, they buried their treasure. Found one stone and went straight to swamp.

StupidAzz History Channel can blow it out their azzes, hope the History Channel goes out of business soon, or gets dropped, falls off the planet. This season, the Lagina brothers welcome new experts and deploy technology like never before to find out. The first of these three incidents involves Dan Henksee, an eccentric, reclusive treasure hunter who has lived on and off Oak Island since 1965. I have done project much more dangerous than this with much less! I'm sure that crew could get to the bottom of this. Or is Rick wise to counsel caution? Of course it cannot be an action pact reality show.
Or will Oak Island Tours Inc. At the Money Pit, Rick and Marty Lagina, Craig Tester, and Jack Begley stand by in anticipation as the caisson approaches the 143-foot level, at which depth they hope to find the elusive Chappell Vault. The following day, historian Charles Barkhouse and writer Randall Sullivan meet with veteran treasure hunter Dan Blankenship. The narrator then explains that the Lagina brothers and their crew are hoping that their caisson will intersect the Chappell Vault, discovered by driller William Chappell and treasure hunter Frederick Blair of the Oak Island Treasure Company in 1897. I have been intrigued by Oak Island since I read about it years ago and have even been to the island and bought a book about it.
Below the cement were five inches of oak, and below the oak were about 2. Finding a coin is a big deal? I wish it were different as I really like the brothers and their passion and dedication to the quest, and I would love to watch it unfold in anything but what amounts to frame by frame slow motion. According to a witness, Henskee fell into what looked to be a sort of trance and collapsed to the ground, screaming. Oh the Templars this, the Masons that! It is a slow pace discovery adventure, so is the show. During their stay, the Spanish learned that the city was one of many under the jurisdiction of Emperor Atahualpa, ruler of the powerful Inca Empire, and that it was rich with gold, silver, and other treasures.
If something of the magnitude of the alleged Pit was ever dug, why haven't they found old heaps of charcoal from fires to cook food for the work gang that dug it? Just waiting for the final of season 1. The answer is obvious; because nothing happened there to begin with. These people keep me clued to the television. Never really took an interest but now I'm hooked. The narrator then describes how Spanish conquistador Franciso Pizarro, in 1528, discovered the Incan city of Tumbes while exploring the west coast of South America south of Panama.
Why haven't they found broken tools, old buttons, bits of clothing, privy shafts, and all the other detritus one would find at a construction site which is what it would have been of that size? Not sure if I believe there really is a treasure but the story line is very interesting and can't wait for the next episode to see what they do and explore. In fact, this unlikely theory is derived from three separate yet eerily consistent incidents involving what some theorists believe to be the supernatural. Why didn't they find a huge heap of wood chips, brush, and other material from all the worked lumber that was needed to crib that 200' shaft and all those flood tunnels? A permit to drain a swamp and not into the ocean, how much could that really hurt? Yes it is too melodramatic but if that's what it takes, like Gold Rush, etc, then fine as long as it's keeps viewers. This is why people died because of absolute stupidity. Roosevelt, who all financed or took part in digs in what's become one of the longest treasure hunts in history. I can't blame the History Channel for trying to drag this out for at least a season. It is not plausible for such an industrious endeavor to occur when the technology to sail was not even present.
Five smaller tunnels led from the chamber, and a number of flood tunnels, plugged with clay, fed into it. I would rather watch PawnStars??? Despite the problems I have with this show, like the slow progress of the show I'll probably keep tuning in just in case they actually find something. I have wasted enough of my time on this show, I won't be watching any more seasons. The worst thing that could happen is that the show does not come back for season 2 or longer. In no time, he unearths a brass bullet casing.
The first of these experiences took place one summer day in 1973. According to an alternative history espoused by some Oak Island theorists, one of the men whom Pizarro left behind warned the Tumpis that Pizarro planned to return with a powerful army and strip the city of its wealth. Some theorists believe this treasure somehow ended up on Oak Island. The Lost Treasure of Tumbes Some Oak Island researchers believe that the Oak Island treasure is none other than the lost Incan treasure of Tumbes, Peru. I read they will do tours of the island so i'm hoping to do a tour in the summer.
