On Oak Island
The Oak Island treasure was a curiosity for many years. In 1796, a boy found a circular depression in the ground on the island, which launched an expedition to investigate the land there. When they found a buried stone tablet, it wasn't for another century that the meaning behind it was revealed…
What Did It Mean?
A Halifax professor later translated the tablet, and it read, "Forty feet below, two million pounds lie buried" But, what it referred to was a mystery, and a local legend said that in order to figure out the mystery of the Oak Island treasure, seven people had to die. To date, the treasure hunt has claimed six lives.
