#OakIsland News Recap III

WESTERN SHORE – You may have heard about the Da Vinci code, but the Ranville codecould be what solves the longest-running treasure hunt in recorded history.
Keith Ranville, a First Nations man, has travelled from Winnipeg to Nova Scotia in hopes of unlocking the secret codes on Oak Island. He says he has done so by re-translating one of the stones found on the island over 200 years ago.
The Oak Island Tourism Society confirms that the stone in question was first found in 1803 by the Onslow Company. Found 90 feet down the Money Pit, the stone was believed to be two feet long and 15 inches wide, weighing approximately 175 lb.
Since that time, it has been said that the inscription on the stone read “forty feet below two million pounds are buried,” as transcribed by James Leitchi, a professor of languages at Dalhousie University. Some researchers have questioned this translation as Mr. Leitchi was involved in a treasure hunting company trying to sell stocks.
Today, the actual stone is lost. It was used as a hearthstone in two homes on Oak Island, but it was moved to a Halifax storefront where it went missing when the building was torn down. Its last known location was around the Centennial Pool area.
Mr. Ranville used pictures of the stone to decipher its series of shapes, lines and dots to reveal a new translation that reads more like a map.
“I’ve brought some new stuff to the table,” he says, adding that the stone’s etchings could be used to figure out the mystery of Oak Island.
By his translation, much of the digging in the Money Pit area has been a waste of time and money.
“I believe the pit wasn’t meant to go beyond 100 feet,” he says. “I believe it wasn’t meant to go beyond these symbols.”
If one were to take Mr. Ranville’s code and follow it, it would lead you off Oak Island, the site of all the treasure hunting for the past 211 years, under the water of the bay and onto the neighbouring Birch Island via man-made shafts.
“The instructions at the bottom of the pit tell you about where and how to locate these shafts and I believe they’re in Mahone Bay,” he says.
Mr. Ranville believes the two islands are connected by these shafts. He said that aerial shots of Birch Island prove the island has been touched by human hands. These aerial shots of the 16-acre Birch Island do show a large triangle which takes up a good portion of the island landscape.
“What I want to do is investigate this island where I think these symbols lead to,” he says.
Mr. Ranville has contacted the owner, Christopher Ondaatje, to inquire about doing some soil testing and exploring on the island.
In addition to being the home of the famous treasure, Mr. Ranville believes Birch Island may also be an ancient burial site for those who were involved in the original treasure-hiding scheme.
“This is a significant Nova Scotia heritage discovery and that is Canada’s national treasure brought here for our guardianship long before Canada was established,” he says. “We should respect the civilization that is responsible for the makings of these structures.
“They were a very unique culture and may hold the secret to many ancient structures.”
Although he doesn’t know who actually buried the treasure, Mr. Ranville believes Oak Island and Birch Island need to be protected from further change to unlock their true history.
At the time of this interview, Mr. Ranville had yet to hear from Mr. Ondaatje regarding the island. He says he will continue to research the island and its tales of mystery and treasure. Check out Google Earth on the World Wide Web to see satellite photos of Birch Island and its triangle.

NEWS RELEASE
NEW READING OF MYSTERIOUS OAK ISLAND INSCRIPTION
Theory points to possible connection with nearby Birch Island
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia: Friday, July 14th, 2006 – – For the past two centuries, the tunnels of Nova Scotia’s Oak Island have piqued the imagination of historians and treasure hunters alike. Now, a new theory by First Nations researcher Keith Ranville may add fresh speculation to the mystery. Based on a unique reading of an inscription once found in the “Money Pit,” Mr. Ranville believes that the answer to the riddle may be found on nearby Birch Island.
Oak Island, located on the scenic Mahone Bay about an hour’s drive south of the provincial capital of Halifax, has been associated with buried treasure since the late 18th century. Local settlers reportedly found a ship’s tackle block hanging from a tree branch, overhanging a large depression in the ground. Early efforts to dig down failed when the diggers encountered layers of timber every 10 feet. In the ensuing generations, several organized excavation attempts have drilled down nearly 200 feet, en route encountering some artifacts within the staggered layers of logs, clay, putty, charcoal, flagstones and most perplexingly, coconut husks. Among the scores of enthusiastic treasure hunters was a young Franklin Roosevelt, one of the investors in a 1909 excavation attempt.
During the earlier diggings of 1800’s, the tunnel had become flooded by seawater – which many believed was the result booby trap being sprung – thus complicating further digging since then. A drilling effort in the mid 1800’s was said to have uncovered fragments of a gold chain. In 1971, a camera was lowered into the pit and reportedly captured images of wooden chests and human remains.
One of the most fascinating artifacts from the pit was said to be a flat stone recovered at the 90 foot depth, carrying a mysterious inscription. A fragment of stone with similar symbols was found nearby in Smith’s Cove in the 1930’s. The stone tablet itself has gone missing, but a record of its symbols remains. Until now, the consensus is that the symbols are a code translated as “forty feet below two million pounds are buried.” However, Keith Ranville’s theory offers a different interpretation as to the stone’s symbols, which could lead to a new explanation of the Oak Island mystery.
“I believe these symbols have been incorrectly assumed to stand for something else. In the First Nations tradition that I’m a part of, we believe symbols should simply be looked at in and of themselves, rather than thinking of them as codes that have to be cracked,” Mr. Ranville explained. “In the pictograms of Cree Salavics, for example, the images are meant to be descriptive, not abstract.” Using this approach, Mr. Ranville examined the Oak Island symbols and found what may be a set of instructions about a tunnel system involving both Oak Island and nearby Birch Island.
For example, the stone inscription begins with a triangle symbol, which is repeated throughout. Mr. Ranville believes that this represents nearby Birch Island, which has a distinctly triangular clearing on its north shore. Likewise, a symbol showing a circle divided into two hemispheres can be thought of as representing north/south directional markers. A series of dots in singles, pairs and triplets may be quantitative symbols.
Examining all the symbols in this way, Mr. Ranville believes that the symbols on the Money Pit’s stone tablet are actually technical instructions describing the location and layout of a possible underground network involving both Oak Island and Birch Island. “There was a fragment of another stone tablet that was found on Oak Island’s Smith Cove in the 1930’s,” Mr. Ranville explained. “It too has these types of symbols, but one in particular appears to be a Greek symbol designating ‘underwater door’. In conjunction with the other symbols, I believe this points to underwater doors and additional shafts on Birch Island itself.” Smith’s Cove is on the part of Oak Island that is closest to Birch Island, and is said to have yielded several artifacts itself over the years.
“Based on the inscribed symbols, I think we should be looking at Oak Island and Birch Island together in order to solve the mystery. If Birch Island proves to have underwater doors and tunnels around its triangular clearing, then it would be a huge step forward in our understanding of what Oak Island is all about.”
There have been many, occasionally bizarre, theories as to what the Oak Island tunnels may contain: a Masonic vault containing the Holy Grail, Viking or Pirate booty, Inca treasure, the French Royal Crown Jewels, payroll for colonial British soldiers or even the secret writings of Francis Bacon. Mr. Ranville prefers not to speculate. “Those are interesting and sometimes funny theories, but I’d rather just look at the evidence that we do have, and go from there.”
Mr. Ranville is a self-taught researcher born in Manitoba. While living in Vancouver, he became acquainted with the Oak Island mystery and began studying it. In October 2005, he relocated to Nova Scotia to further research and advance his theories on the subject.
Both Oak Island and Birch Island are private property, and access must be sought by permission of the landowners.

Cree Code Breaker Keith Ranville and the Oak Island Mystery

By Brent Raynes

Keith Ranville of Vancouver, British Columbia, is a Cree Indian who was born in Winnipeg. Keith has brought a new perspective to the legendary Oak Island mystery of Nova Scotia’s Mahone Bay area, and it’s probably about time. I first read about this mystery myself in Stranger Than Science by Frank Edwards back in the late 1960s. 213 years have passed so far and no one has yet to recover the pirate treasure that so many feel is buried beneath the earth there. Over the years, many people have attempted to translate mysterious symbols reportedly copied from two different stones on the island, hoping to isolate some vital clue or insight into how to retrieve the treasure that is believed to be buried there.
In a statement posted on the Internet two months ago, Keith Ranville was quoted: “I believe these symbols have been incorrectly assumed to stand for something else. In the First Nations tradition that I’m a part of, we believe symbols should simply be looked at in and of themselves, rather than thinking of them as codes that have to be cracked. In the pictograms of Cree Salavics, for example, the images are meant to be descriptive, not abstract.”

Keith noticed the use of triangles from the stone symbols to be a recurrent and possibly a significant theme. “The triangles seemed like they were more emphasized,” he said. “The first line of the symbols were mostly triangles. I got the idea that this thing was mostly about triangles and so I began to look for triangle clues on the island itself. There was one triangular clue, a stone triangle, that was found south of this so-called ‘Money Pit.’”
“I looked on google at aerial photos of the island and I went east of that stone triangle that was there, because on the symbols itself there was an arrow that pointed at the right angle of a triangle, the fourth and fifth symbol, so I went in that direction and I looked everywhere there east on the island. I didn’t see it, so I checked on a neighboring island, and sure enough a big triangle popped out at me from Birch Island.” It was a section of the island that had a triangular appearance.
Speaking of triangles, Keith made another discovery. “I found something while doing Internet research that actually talks about the significance of triangles in Micmac language,” he noted. “It actually means something like God and in Egyptian it means ‘exalted one.’ That’s off of petroglyphs of the Micmacs and their writings, and so that really fascinated me too because the Micmac are native to the Mahone Bay area. If anyone is going to know about this Oak Island mystery it’s going to be the Micmacs because it’s in their back yard.”
Since three young men discovered this vertical shaft entrance back in 1795, which they believed led to a pirate treasure, countless man hours have been spent, and, over the years, it has exceeded ten million dollars in cost to try and get to the proverbial bottom of what has become known as the “Money Pit,” not to mention the tragic loss of human life. So far the lives of six men have been lost. In 1803, the Onslow Company, which had become the first in a long line of treasure recovery operations, discovered at the 90 foot level a flat stone with a strange inscription on it. Reportedly weighing about 175 pounds, measuring two feet long and 15 inches wide, a translation attempt was made by one James Leitchi, a professor of languages at Dalhousie University, who thought it perhaps read, “forty feet below two million pounds are buried.”
“The thing with Oak Island is that it has always been a controversy,” Keith explained to me. “There was so much lost evidence and there were like no significant well documented archaeological finds and it seemed like one thing was bungled up after another.” Yes, unfortunately the inscription stone eventually became lost. We’re told that it became used as a hearthstone in two homes on Oak Island, and then it was placed in a Halifax store front where it went missing around 1900 after the building was torn down. However, the two line and forty-character text was reportedly copied and thus preserved by a Mahone Bay schoolteacher who had hoped that he could translate it.
Meanwhile, back in the 1930’s, the fragment of another stone, with similar symbols on it, turned up at Oak Island’s Smith Cove, though it also had a symbol that was different. “It could be Greek,” Keith explained. “I’m not too sure if it is. But four dots and a plus in the middle in Greek means ‘underwater doors.’ I think that around the 100 foot level, the area where the treasure stone was found, they should not have gone any farther.” Reportedly the mine shaft goes down nearly 200 feet now.
“There’s supposed to be another dig going on this summer,” Keith added. “They figure that there’s like a Spanish treasure down there.” So far, fragments of a gold chain have been found, and a camera lowered down into the pit in 1971 reportedly recorded images of wooden chests and human remains.
“It seems more like a spiritual quest than a treasure hunting quest,” Keith confided. “For me to come up with all of these possible and plausible solutions to Oak Island intrigues a lot of people as to how this native guy, out of nowhere, comes to Oak Island, to Nova Scotia, and people are willing to write articles and letters of support. I’ve been on the radio numerous times.”
In the summer of 2005, Keith traveled to Nova Scotia and spent a year looking into the Oak Island mystery. “I think what most people are intrigued by is how I got there because anyone can jump on a plane and go to Nova Scotia and then come back,” Keith told me. “I got there pretty much on my wits. I hitchhiked most of the way and took a bus a little bit of the way. I rested out in Winnipeg first, for a week or so, and then I continued on my journey. I guess Winnipeg was like the halfway mark. I went from city to city. I talked to many people. I talked to the Freemasons and they’re pretty intrigued with what I was saying about Oak Island. For some reason, I felt a need to talk to them. I have no desire to become a Freemason myself.”
“When I was in high school I was going to do a paper on the Oak Island mystery,” Keith recalled. “I didn’t get to hand it in because there was a death in the family. But I remembered the original concept I perceived on translating these symbols back then but I didn’t follow up on it until years later, until I was in my mid-thirties.” “I believe it was a universal written language. I feel that it was something made to be understood no matter what culture you are from or what language you speak. It wasn’t something made for just one creed of person or a certain group of people to understand. It was meant for anyone.” “I believe that there may be a Mayan connection to this, for some reason,” Keith added. “Just by the way that the stones of this triangle were lined up. It just gave me that feeling that this was Mayan, and especially with the symbols themselves.”
Keith also gets insights sometimes in his dreams.
