The last featured what fans were waiting for a long time. Two human bone fragments were recovered and sent in for testing. The team proposes pumping borehole 10-X dry to enable yet another round of searches. Rick Lagina has headaches and a rash. Some of the team are in denial about this and insist there is still some point in exploring 10-X further on the basis that Dan Blankenship has spent so much time on it, it must be the key to the alleged puzzle.
Season 5 so far seems an unfortunate bust, yet the most upsetting thing is how it has been organized by the History Channel this season. Researcher Zena Halpern presents a handmade copy of what she claims is a French map from 1347 of Oak Island. It is discovered that one of the words on the Zena Halpern map is the name of a French family Rochefoucauld who participated in the Crusades. They find a tiny piece of metal. Zena Halpern is shown a picture of the lead cross and claims it is not a cross, but the symbol of the Phoenician goddess.
The team decides to dig another hole. More wood, a bone and a metal spike are brought up from a borehole in the money pit area. The team wants to search more of the Island with metal detectors in the future. It is theorized, with no supporting evidence, that crosses with an attaching loop at the top were used by members of the Knights Templar and that this lead cross dates from the years 1200 to 1600. She also claims that the country of Canada was named by the Templars after the town of in France. Part of a metal spoon and round rocks are discovered under tree stumps. A part of the swamp is drained and a wooden stake is found.
However, they have done a big job this time because they will find an artifact that has been missing from more than a century. The team was having a lot of expectations from the dig, like artifacts or treasures. But, hey, Season 5 is still young. On examination, the exposed surface of the drilling obstruction at the money pit appears to be rocks and clay soil. Note: This episode is a special. A hose on the drill detaches resulting in a worker falling backward and suffering a minor injury to his wrist. The team searches the swamp again and finds nothing.
After awhile the inflection of excitement and mystery wears off and becomes an annoying buzz. We also had a lot to know about the lead cross that they found about six weeks ago. Archived from on September 26, 2015. Spoiler alert: They find nothing significant. Pottery fragments are found in the trench.
More pottery fragments, another bone and small bits of leather are found in the material brought up from borehole H8. A button claimed to be from the 1700s and an old jewelry fragment are located by metal detector. Not that he doesn't seem like a nice guy but its like the boy who cried wolf. Rocks are found at Smith's Cove. . Oh, and some randomly selected rocks on the island -- if you squint at them just right and have a very active imagination -- look kinda-sorta-maybe a little bit like carved faces.
There is an unproductive search for treasure north of the Money Pit. Literally just watched the last episode in 5 minutes. The team decides to do a new examination of borehole 10X. How many of those shirts do you own? The wood from borehole 10-X is carbon dated as being from 1670-1780. After making major discoveries in borehole 10-X and the infamous Money Pit last year, brothers Rick and Marty Lagina and their partners employ today's most advanced technology to venture deep inside Oak Island. Drilling is halted for over a week. Season finale featured McGinnis gold cross, iron spike, and other artifacts evaluated by antiques appraiser Dr.
The trailer includes several never-seen-before pieces of footage, including Rick Lagina being handed an item found during a dig. Previous trailers have shown what looks like , and all the trailers show Marty suggesting the team find the original Money Pit this season. A visitor shows them alleged evidence that the treasures from could be buried on Oak Island. The investigation of the cove is halted for the year. A diver is later sent into the swamp and finds no additional objects. It is determined that the rocks found in Season Five Episode 3 are not consistent with the foundation of a house. Note: This episode is a special.
