Historic investigator J. Hutton Pulitzer, has put a large white paper together with a group of academics from the AAPS (Ancient Artifact Preservation Society). He claims to have evidence of a Roman sword found submerged just off Oak Island – and what is believed to be a Roman shipwreck. Pulitzer says this sword is ‘100 per cent confirmed’ and described it as the ‘smoking gun’ to his theory.
