DATELINE: Gary Drayton Finds Another Gem!
Two Islands Become Merged!
Curses aside, is it the year we finally hit paydirt? You need two hours for the first episode of the new season.
The seventh season premiere of The Curse of Oak Island is highly anticipated if only because of those promos that are promising the treasure steps to nirvana.
You could say everything is ship-shaped to begin the new year. There is a 200’ long ship apparently buried in the swamp. And, even more interesting, there is a road or wharf made of stone next to it.
The swamp now appears to be man-made and artificial for sure.
Yet, it is the team of Gary Drayton and Alex Lagina who find more beachfront artifacts. They had already been a team and good workers on the other gold digger show about the lost Civil War treasure.
Now they go out to a rocky locale to discover a spike of sorts. Once again, Drayton is the key and his uncanny insights date the item as quite old, despite not having any corrosion. He also finds a silver button, clearly belonging to someone of wealth or importance.
This stuff must go to more specific experts. A conservator is brought in to clean up the button
And, the old spike is brought to an expert who looks it over and sees it is used for stone carving, back in the 1300s. Of course, a tool made then could be used for hundreds of years. Blacksmithing expert in Nova Scotia thinks it was a stonemason tool. We are talking Templar and freemason connections. Again.
Had they found the actual tool that carved the infamous 90’ stone that led to the original search for the treasure?
