Mystery of Oak Island Has Finally Been Uncovered, But Not Without A Major Cost

The Mystery of Oak Island, a popular show on the History Channel, highlights a two-hundred-year-old tale of buried treasure on Oak Island in Nova Scotia. Chasing after this treasure, however, wasn't for the faint of heart, as the area is laced with booby traps and hidden surprises. But buried beneath the surface, the potential for remarkable treasures once owned by the likes of Marie Antoinette, religious royalty, and even William Shakespeare has kept treasure hunters hot on the trail for many, many years. This task has cost explorers everything, even their lives.
