'The Curse Of Oak Island' Season 7 Episode 14: Iron artifacts are hard evidence of a burnt ship in the swamp
The team discovers some burnt iron artifacts, which they are sure belong to a ship from centuries ago
Talk about an intense and action-packed episode. Episode 14 of 'The Curse Of Oak Island' titled 'Burnt Offering' turned out to be an intense and gripping one. Of course, there was no controversial treasure found but the team discovered some unusual iron artifacts from the swamp, which they are sure belong to a ship from centuries ago.
Blacksmith Carmen Legge, who is usually called on the show to confirm such theories, gave his insight on what exactly he believed them to be. Fans might be exhausted to see another round of iron items but these actually seemed to have a valuable history attached to them. One was from a ship. This could possibly be one of the pirate ships that visited the island centuries ago.
Moreover, it appeared to have sustained a fire. Considering that they believe that a ship-shaped anomaly is at the bottom of the swamp, the team pondered the next question. What is a ship doing at the bottom of the swamp and why is it burnt? One theory is that the treasure ship was brought in and then blown up or burnt.
Indeed, the swamp is proving to be a goldmine of strange mysteries. There were some mishaps in the episode, including the collapse of the wooden structure at Smith's Cove. However, it led to one conclusion that it was connected to the stone box drains that had fed the flood tunnels. Yet, the ever-determined Lagina brothers are confident that "what they didn't find here, they'll find there". Honestly, the highlights of the episode always lie at the swamp site rather than anywhere else. The swamp provides more complex history and theories than the rest of the island.
It remains to be seen whether they actually solve the mystery or have they just scratched the surface. In the preview for the next episode, the team discovers more evidence of a ship.
Whew, that was an interesting episode. 'The Curse of Oak Island' airs on History Channel on Tuesdays at 9pm.
