Synopsis: At the Money Pit the drilling team is preparing to put a 50” casing down H8. We get a recap of all the things that have come out of H8 so far. Marty drops a symbolic coin down the small H8 shaft. In the war room the bones are discussed. The Middle East bone is 1682-1736. The European bone is 1678-1764. These were found at 162 feet and no one is quite sure what to think. The team meets with an historian at a pub. The discuss the map from Zena. The name on the map is that of Crusader Kings. He tells them about a special collections room in the library at the college he works out. Gary joins them and they do some metal detecting and digging. He finds part of a horseshoe. They also find several sunken wells in the ground, but they team thinks they are old shallow search pits. Grapeshot, cannon ammunition is also found. A coin in an irregular shape is found as well. Alex and Charles joins the historian in the information hunt in the library. They find a map, with Mahone Bay missing. At the Money Pit, they are just about ready to start digging H8. Back in the library, they find a family tree. In the war room, Rick and Alex video call Nichola. She’s a French researcher and translator. She’s been in touch with a member of the family named on the map. She’s invited the team to come out to the castle, where she lives. It’s the day the drilling in H8 begins. Dan comes to join them for the start of this dig. The casing gets two things written on it, “Dan’s Breakthrough” and “Forever Family.” Rick asks Dan to hit the button to start the big dig.
