⊕ Plot Summary : “In 1795, a youngster discovered a mysterious circular depression within the ground on Oak Island, in star Scotia, Canada, and enkindled rumors of buried treasure. Early excavators uncovered a clay-lined shaft containing layers of soil interspersed with picket platforms, however after they reached a depth of ninety feet, water poured into the shaft and created additional dig not possible.

Since then the mystery of Oak Island’s “Money Pit” has enthralled generations of treasure hunters, together with a Hub of the Universe insurance salesperson whose obsession ruined him; young Franklin Delano Roosevelt; and movie star Errol Flynn. confusing discoveries have enkindled explorers’ imaginations: a flat stone inscribed in code; a flood tunnel debilitating from a unreal beach; a torn scrap of parchment; stone markers forming an enormous cross. Swaths of the island were bulldozed searching for answers; excavation makes an attempt have claimed 2 lives. Theories abound on what’s hidden on Oak Island—pirates’ treasure, Marie Antoinette’s lost jewels, the Sangraal, proof that Sir Francis Bacon was verity author of Shakespeare’s plays—yet to the present day, the money Pit remains AN enigma.

The Curse of Oak Island could be a fascinating account of the strange, wealthy history of the island and also the bold treasure hunters WHO have driven themselves to economic ruin, psychotic breakdowns, and even death in pursuit of answers. And as Michigan brothers Marty and Rick Lagina become the newest to try to resolve the mystery, as documented on the History Channel’s program The Curse of Oak Island, Sullivan takes readers on to follow their quest primary.”

• Description : In ‘I Succeeded Once’ – The Aboriginal Protectorate on the Mornington Peninsula, 1839-1840, Marie Fels makes the work of William Thomas accessible to anthropologists, archaeologists, historians and the descendants of the Aboriginal people he wrote about. More importantly, people who live, work, study, holiday or just have a general interest in the area from Melbourne to Point Nepean can learn about the original inhabitants who walked the land before it was cleared for agriculture and urban development. Of course, development of the Mornington Peninsula is ongoing and this book will help those involved in development or the management of Aboriginal cultural heritage to identify, document and protect Aboriginal places that may not be identifiable through archaeological investigations alone. Marie Fels supplements Thomas’s writings with other contemporary accounts and her exhaustive historical research sheds new light on critical events and the significant places of the Boon Wurrung people. Of particular importance is the critical review of information about the kidnapping of Boon Wurrung people from the Mornington Peninsula. [...] by Publisher : 'ANU E Press'

• Description : A compelling argument that connects the lost treasure of the Knights Templar to the mysterious money pit on Oak Island, Nova Scotia, that has baffled treasure hunters for two centuries • Fascinating occult detective work linking the Cathars, the Scottish Masons, and Renne-le-Chateau to the elusive treasure pit on Oak Island • Draws on new evidence recently unearthed in Italy, France, and Scotland to provide a compelling solution to one of the world's most enduring mysteries When the Order of Knights Templar was ruthlessly dissolved in 1307 by King Philip the Fair of France it possessed immense wealth and political power, yet none of the treasure the Templars amassed has ever been found. Their treasure is rumored to contain artifacts of spiritual significance retrieved by the order during the Crusades, including the genealogies of David and Jesus and documents that trace these bloodlines into the royal bloodlines of Merovingian France. Placing a Scottish presence in the New World a century before Columbus, Steven Sora paints a credible scenario that has the Sinclair clan of Scotland transporting the wealth of the Templars--entrusted to them as the Masonic heirs of the order--to a remote island off the shores of present-day Nova Scotia. The mysterious money pit there is commonly believed to have been built before 1497 and has guarded its secret contents tenaciously despite two centuries of determined efforts to unearth it. All of these efforts (one even financed by American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt) have failed, thanks to an elaborate system of booby traps, false beaches, hidden drains, and other hazards of remarkable ingenuity and technological complexity.

• Description : Do numbers and the other objects of mathematics enjoy a timeless existence independent of human minds, or are they the products of cerebral invention? Do we discover them, as Plato supposed and many others have believed since, or do we construct them? Does the physical world actually obey mathematical laws, or does it seem to conform to them simply because physicists have increasingly been able to make mathematical sense of it? Does mathematics constitute a universal language that in principle would permit human beings to communicate with extraterrestrial civilizations elsewhere in the universe, or is it merely an earthly language that owes its accidental existence to the peculiar evolution of neuronal networks in our brains? Jean-Pierre Changeux, an internationally renowned neurobiologist, and Alain Connes, one of the most eminent living mathematicians, find themselves deeply divided by these questions. Why order should exist in the world at all, and why it should be comprehensible to human beings, is the question that lies at the heart of these remarkable dialogues.
