'The Curse Of Oak Island' Season 8 Episode 4 Preview: Were the oxen used to offload treasure into Money Pit?
It was blacksmith Carmen Leggae who linked the ox foot to the origin of the British on the island
'The Curse Of Oak Island' Season 8 premiered with a bang. After finding something looking suspiciously like gold in the murky depths of the island, the Laginas and team chanced upon a Chinese coin, courtesy Gary Drayton and Jack Begley. This fuelled numerous theories, on whether the Chinese buried treasure on the island or not. This is the latest in the slew of beliefs that the island already espouses: Pirates, Knights Templars, Spanish and French activity, and now there's a chance of Chinese activity on the island. But wait, that's not all: the team has found an ox foot, and they're sure that is linked to the paved wharf and LOT 15.
It was blacksmith Carmen Leggae who linked the ox foot to the origin of the British on the island. Could the English have used the oxes to carry treasure into the pit? Could the ox foot be linked to the mysterious anomaly in the Swamp? What does it all mean?
The questions are just going to increase, as the season progresses. There is no synopsis yet, so it's quite difficult to predict what's going to happen next.
The Laginas are determined to solve the mysteries of the island once and for all, this season.
The Curse Of Oak Island' chronicles the efforts of Rick and Marty Lagina, and the Fellowship, as they struggle to unravel the mysteries of the island. Apart from treasure hunting that hasn't borne much fruit, the show explores legends and tales about the island. They're still hoping to find the vaults of buried treasure on the island, something researchers and historians have been trying to do for the past 200 years. Artifacts such as pickaxes, coins and crosses suggest that there was intense activity on the island before the 1700s, and the Lagina brothers are attempting to put the puzzle together. It has been over 200 years since scholars began searching the island, but each small find has led to more burning questions. It remains to be seen if the Laginas find the treasure or fall prey to the curse that is said to haunt the island.
'The Curse Of Oak Island' airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on History Channel.
