The Curse of Oak Island returned to the swamp after being kicked out last year. With the releases now allowing them to return, questions about the history of the famous stone causeway have arisen again.

Here’s a look at what the guys are up to so far and some history on the stone pavement.

Curse of Oak Island back in the swamp

Billy Gerhardt helped the guys open the swamp for filming The Curse of Oak Island again and things are already getting exciting in this part of the island. He obtained permits from the Nova Scotia government to bring them back. Last week, they immediately resumed digging the swamp.

When the team last visited the swamp, they found First Nations Mi’kmaq pottery that was up to 2,500 years old. This led the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage and the Council of the Acadia First Nation to halt exploration in the swamp. The swamp is now reopened and the team has found something interesting there.

As the team searched for metal objects on this trip, they found none. However, they found something else. They found more cobblestones. This again brought about a ramp that connected a paved area to the roadway. Ultimately, this could mean that there is a hidden network of roads beneath the swamp.

This paved area was first discovered in 2017. Ian Spooner said it could be up to 800 years old. But what does this causeway mean?

Who built the stone causeway on Oak Island?

The team dug up the paved path in the swamp on The Curse of Oak Island back in season 8. The idea is that this was once connected to a dock in the swamp that led to the highlands. There’s a thought he went all the way to the Money Pit. According to the team’s theories, it was the road that helped someone unload the treasure at the dock before transporting it to the Money Pit.

Some say it could be a British made stone causeway because of all the British made artefacts they have found in the area. As for the Lagina brothers, they have differing opinions. Rick thinks this stone causeway might hold the key to the island’s secrets. Marty thinks it’s important, but maybe not at Rick’s level.

The leading theory on the stone causeway is that the Portuguese may have built it in the 1500s. Professional historian Terry Deveau believes it is similar to the style of roads built in Portugal at that time. There was also an aerial photo of Oak Island from the 1930s that showed a stone road.
