A possible Ancient Egyptian artifact has been found on Oak Island, Nova Scotia.


Last year on the reality TV series "The Curse of Oak Island" on an episode of the tenth season called:Over the Muon, Gary Drayton and Jack Begley unearthed a copper or bronze artifact with a green patina that may be from Ancient Egypt. This copper alloy piece is about two by three inches and is folded over with three separate folds. On one side there appears three Egyptian wick or rope symbols combined with a Moon or Sun symbol and on the back side of the piece there appears the imprint of a couple of Sun symbols and rope/wick symbols. How a piece of Ancient Egyptian copper alloy made it to Oak Island is a big question.

The ancient piece was analyzed by Emma Culligan in an XRF machine and the artifact contained 94.5% copper, 3.35% zinc, 1.92% iron and .23% arsenic. This formula created a bronze object that may have been created a very long time ago. Maybe thousands of years ago?


In the 12th episode of "The Curse of Oak Island":A Lot to be Desired, a chamber was located by sonar 150 feet below ground that measures about 27 feet long by 12 feet tall. Could this be a chamber filled with Ancient Egyptian treasures left there more than two thousand years ago? We might find out later this year.


Hopefully, Gary Drayton will have a new saying in future episodes of "The Curse of Oak Island" - "Ancient Egyptian, Baby".
