A remarkable new find has suggested that the Romans may have visited North America 2,000 years ago.
Located on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, Oak Island has long remained a place of mystery and intrigue. Its most prominent enigma, a strange booby-trapped shaft known as the Money Pit, has claimed the lives of many who have sought to unravel its secrets.
Now however researchers lead by historic investigator J. Hutton Pulitzer claim to have discovered evidence that it was actually the Romans who first set foot on the island having arrived there almost 1,500 years before Christopher Columbus set out on his voyage to the Americas.
The claim centers around the finding of what is believed to be a Roman shipwreck off the coast of the island and a Roman sword that was recovered from the water within its vicinity.
According to Pulitzer, the sword’s metallic properties match those of genuine Roman weapons and the shipwreck from which it allegedly came still remains untouched at the bottom of the sea.
“We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is Roman,” he said. “I think this is the single most important discovery for the Americas – an event that will re-write history.”
