The Curse of Oak Island Season 8 Episode 16 Recap

In the opening scene of the 16th episode titled ‘Leather Bound,’ it is established that the Laginas have discovered two mysterious pathways over the course of their activities in the swamp. One of them is believed to have been part of a ship stock. The other one is leading upwards, possibly to the location of the original Money Pit.

The team hires an archaeologist called Aaron Taylor, who would assess the currently examined pathway. They would be getting rid of all the mud and rocks accumulating over the passage. The team had also been previously investigating the Money Pit area near a borehole where they found several items of value. Now they are drilling another borehole in the same area, which might possibly lead to a tunnel buried eighty-seven and a half feet deep.

Back in the pathway, the team scoops out a leather strap while digging, which might be related to other leather artifacts from the 15th-century previously uncovered. This is not all. A piece of European earthenware dating as early as 1604 is slowly dredged up by the team. On the other hand, Rick Lagina heads to lot 25 in search of more evidence or clues. The tunnel that the Oak Island team discover might be as old as 150 years before the treasure shaft was dug up. But they still need more information to know how it is exactly related to the Money Pit.
