"We make landfall on an island of oaks." So reads a 12th century Templar manuscript recovered from a medieval Italian church. Two of history's great mysteries-the fate of the Knights Templar and the truth about the Oak Island treasure-reveal themselves in this fascinating saga of hidden history. "The book we've all been waiting for!" says Rick Lagina, star of History Channel's Curse of Oak Island.
In her book The Templar Mission to Oak Island and Beyond, Halpern associates
this map with a supposed voyage to Nova Scotia undertaken in 1179 by a
Templar knight named Ralph de Sudeley. For more information, see the

It started on a summer afternoon in 1795 when a young man named Daniel McGinnis found what appeared to be an old site on an island off the Acadian coast, a coastline fabled for the skullduggery of pirates. The notorious Captain Kidd was rumored to have left part of his treasure somewhere along here, and as McGinnis and two friends started to dig, they found what turned out to be an elaborately engineered shaft constructed of oak logs, nonindigenous coconut mats, and landfill that came to be known as the Money Pit. Ever since that summer day in 1795, the possibility of what might be hidden in the depths of a small island off the south coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, has made it the site of the world's longest, most expensive, and most perplexing treasure hunt. Author D'Arcy O'Connor recounts the fascinating stories and amazing discoveries of past and current treasure seekers who have sought Oak Island's fabled treasure for over two hundred years. It has baffled scientists and madmen, scholars and idiots, millionaires and get-rich-quick schemers, psychics, engineers, charlatans, and even a former president of the United States. The island has consumed the fortunes-and in some cases, the lives-of those who have obsessively set out to unlock its secret. Despite all their efforts, the mystery remains unsolved, and not a single dime of treasure has ever been recovered. The present-day search is an archaeological dig exceeding anything ever done anywhere for similar purposes, and it may well result in the discovery of one of the world's richest and most historically significant treasures. But this is also the story of individuals who have dedicated years of their lives to discover what was buried long ago beneath this strange island. They are driven by a lust for gold, by archaeological curiosity, and by their determination to outwit the engineer who was responsible for the Oak Island enigma.

The Journals of Prince Henry Sinclair and his descendants (20 books and a lambskin map) were found by accident in 2005 in a dusty dirty basement in Greeneville, TN. They then lay in a trunk in the back of the closet for almost 9 years before the author realized what she had. Translating the journals from Latin, Old English, and modern English she soon learned the story of her own 17th great-grandfather, Prince Henry Sinclair of Orkney and Scotland. Join the author and her great-grandfathers on a voyage of discovery as you learn about the covenant made between the St. Clair/Sinclair and Wemyss family, the Templars, the Native Americans, and the Freemasons. Travel with us as we search for the artifacts mentioned in the journals and validate the story. Book 1 of 10, tells the story of Henry as a young boy from the age of 8 in 1353 until l395 when he plans a voyage with Captain Nicolo Zeno and his son Antonio Zeno to Greenland and beyond.

This fifth printing of the best-selling Holy Grail Across the Atlantic offers some fascinating interpretations of early Canadian history that you may prefer to doubt - but will not be able to forget! When the fortress of MontsAgur, reputed sanctuary of the great religious treasure of the Templars was sacked by forces of the Inquisition in 1244, did the Templars manage to escape with the Holy Grail? Legends insist that the Holy Grail was taken to safety before the doomed citadel was stormed. Was a castle in Nova Scotia the new haven for the Holy Grail? Is the famous and mysterious "money pit" on Oak Island in Mahone Bay connected with a desperate and courageous attempt to save the Holy Grail? Was Samuel de Champlain a secret agent for the Grail Dynasty, and did his maps and journals purposely obscure the location of the Grail's secret refuge in Acadia? And later on, was the Holy Grail transported to a new haven in Montreal founded by a mysterious secret society?
