It's been ten years since we first posted about the mysterious Money Pit at Oak Island in Nova Scotia, and its tales of buried pirate treasure.
This legend dates back to centuries ago when a young boy came upon the location and discovered what seemed like an invisible “X” marked on a spot. Since then, people have been digging and to this day, no treasure is yet to be found.
The lack of findings is attributed to a series of booby traps, which flooded the pit with seawater when treasure hunters get close to the booty. Or is the whole thing just a natural phenomena? In 2014, the History Channel launched a reality TV show about the folks who are investigating what may be buried on Oak Island. Viewers of The Curse of Oak Island have their own opinions on what caused all the hoopla, Read the most plausible theories on the treasure, or lack thereof, at Oak Island.
