It is with great thanks to Robert Dunfield’s son that we are able to share this collection of photographs of his father’s excavations on Oak Island.

Robert Dunfield’s father, and Mrs Dunfield looking down into the deep excavations. You can see the trepidation in her face and body looking at what must have been quite a depth.
Robert Dunfield is talking with Marshall Hiltz at the head of the causeway. Marshall and Robert Dunfield Jnr spent a lot of time together, who Robert describes as “a kind and gentle man”. They hunted for scallops in Mahone Bay, whittled small boats and spoke of buried treasure.

This is the second piece of china recovered which was sent to Oxford University for dating. This was recovered from the Money Pit at the deepest level reached.
This photo shows the causeway about half way finished. Robert Dunfield Jnr explains “If this was proposed in 2010, it never would have been built due to environmental concerns. People need to understand that the times were different in 1965. Ideas and projects were looked at in a far different light and many things were acceptable, whereas now we are cautious and have different rules. Simply stated, times were different 45 years ago.”
