Synopsis: The team discusses the new hole they’ve dug and their progress so far. We see footage of all the teeth that have come off the can, no less than 11. Since progress has halted they’ve called in a diver. Rick explains the situation to him. Rick, Marty and Gary work in Smith’s Cove at low tide excavating. Something gets uncovered and Rick tries to dig it out for inspection. They find wood and evidence of a structure. But they tide begins to roll in. He pulls out a piece of wood. It’s been axe cut and it’s old. They will have it carbon dated. Depending on the age of it there could be future full scale excavation. Charles and Rick go to talk to Dan about his experience with Smith’s Cove. Some of the team travel to Wolfville while they wait on the carbon dating results. They meet with descendants of Dunfield. They show Rick something that Dunfield brought home. It’s a piece of wood. They agree to let Rick and Charles take the wood for testing. In the war room, some of the team meets to find out about the test results from the wood from the cove. Marty and Craig join them via video conference with the results. They also have the results from the Dunfield wood. The piece of wood from the cove dates to 1684-1732. The Dunfield wood dates to 1646-1690. These dates are similar to the bones ages. Marty wants to unearth the U shaped structure. Rick and Gary do some more metal detecting on another part of the island. They find a button. They also found part of a brooch. They find a cut jewel as well. The go over the theory that it’s Marie Antoinette’s jewels hidden on the island. They call the rest of the team and they run to the location. Everyone is in awe.
