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.
