Hello Swede and who just became a member. Welcome from NEw England.

I think you'll find Graham Harris's book useful,maybe?

And you can get the Bates map by PM'ing Mad Davey Kidd a member here. He has a bunch of them and for sale maybe even.
Whewww...where does the time go!

TheSwede

Thanks for the PM. I reckon the best place to start is the Roper / Bates survey of August 1937 - if you can get a copy. in any event, get hold of a copy of Laverne Johnson's booklet (1991, Revealed: The Secret of Oak Island) because there's a good transcription of this survey on the rear inside cover.

IMO Rupert Furneaux (1972, The Money Pit Mystery) made a good start in presenting a geometrical framework linking the various features but beware that nobody here likes the sort of purposeful geometrical reconstruction that I produced. In fact, nobody wants to believe that there was any purpose to the drilled rocks and triangle except to locate the Money Pit - which was so damned obvious it had already been located!!! In any event, steer clear of "wacky geometry" (as my attempt at breaking into the mystery was derisively referred to on this forum) because it won't sell!

Good luck!

Hi Daniel:

I received a letter from my editor at Lyons Press yesterday dated June 20th, forwarding your request to them for my email address (We've just finished a lengthy postal strike here in Canada, so that's why it was held up). Anyway, if you have any specific questions, you can always PM me here.

Cheers,

D'Arcy O'Connor
