Description: The authors are underground engineers and analyze all the attempted efforts (since 1795) to raise the treasure buried at Oak Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. What makes this book interesting to the sunken treasure enthusiast is the author’s well researched hypothesis that the buried treasure was put there by William Phips and consists of what he salvaged from the stern castle of the “Concepcion” (which traditional accounts say he never recovered because it was covered in coral).
