  • WILLIAM SHATNER: Tell me what you

  • found that's important enough to rewrite history.

  • - That. - What?

  • RICK LAGINA: That.

  • CRAIG TESTER: Yeah.

  • That medieval cross.

  • Give me the cross.

  • OK.

  • This has been ascertained to have antiquity, right?

  • Yes.

  • 1400.

  • Is that correct?

  • CRAIG TESTER: Yep.

  • Mm-hmm.

  • This is around 600 years old.

  • Well, it was mined 600 years ago.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: Where was it mined?

  • South of France, best we know.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: OK, this is from south of France.

  • MARTY LAGINA: Yes.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: So that doesn't mean that this

  • was here 600 years ago.

  • No.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: It was in France 600 years ago

  • and arrived here at an undetermined date.

  • Of course.

  • Correct.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: Was this found underground?

  • It was found in Smith's Cove.

  • There's the man who found it.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: With your shovel,

  • you were able to uncover it?

  • Oh, I don't do my own digging.

  • I've got all these guys to dig for me.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • But yeah, Rick and I were on Smith's Cove Beach,

  • and Rick dug that out.

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

  • Holy--

  • Holy shimoly, all right.

  • It's a cross.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • I mean, that is an old, old cross.

  • Is this worth anything?

  • It could be.

  • That could be part of the treasure

  • that we're looking for.

  • It doesn't have to be gold and silver.

  • It could be some fantastic religious treasure.

  • And I'm hoping it is.

  • Well, even the cynic in me says how many of those

  • have you seen in North America?

  • I've never seen--

  • Neither have we.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Who put all this here?

  • Do you have any concrete ideas and opinions?

  • What are your theories?

  • What are you thinking?

  • Templars.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • That's where I'm going.

  • Y'all believe in Templars?

  • Because the Templars seems to be the prevalent idea.

  • I would love it to be something in association

  • with the Templars, because 300 years ago,

  • from nine knights to rivaling the monarchy and the Vatican

  • for power and influence, right?

  • And then they're gone.

  • How wonderful to fill those pages of history.

  • You know, the Templars are a great answer,

  • in that we know that they were marked for destruction.

  • And many of them ran as quickly as possible to escape the death

  • by the French King, wasn't it?

  • King Philip III.

  • King Philip.

  • And many of them were put to death.

  • But many Templars escaped.

  • Where did they go?

  • If I were a Templar, I'd have gone to Oak Island immediately.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • We went to the famous Templar prison in France, Domme.

  • There was a walled city.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: In France? RICK LAGINA: Yes.

  • At the gate, there was a--

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: Where in France?

  • RICK LAGINA: --tower.

  • Domme. That's the name--

  • Oh, that's the name of the city.

  • D-O-M-M-E. Domme.

  • I am D-O-U-M-B.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Come in.

  • RICK LAGINA: But within the walls of that prison,

  • where up to 70 Templar Knights were imprisoned,

  • they knew at that point they would

  • never see their freedom again.

  • And you can see lots of evidence of how they passed

  • their time, which was by making carvings in the walls

  • to sustain them spiritually.

  • Over here is some of the most well-known carvings

  • they've done.

  • This way.

  • RICK LAGINA: And there are hundreds,

  • perhaps even thousands, of carvings

  • on the walls of that prison.

  • Deep carvings of the Virgin Mary with the child, Jesus.

  • Rather ordinary crosses.

  • RICK LAGINA: And one of those carvings

  • certainly looks like that very cross.

  • And I would be willing to bet that you could

  • take that and put it in the wall of the prison,

  • and it would line up perfectly.

  • WILLIAM SHATNER: Wow.

WILLIAM SHATNER: Tell me what you
