In an attempt to demonstrate the Roman sword and shipwreck are more than mere coincidence, Pultizer and his team examined the area around Nova Scotia, alongside archaeological records to see if there were any other ‘coincidences’. They looked at the indigenous natives of Nova Scotia - the Mi’kmaq people - who are believed to have lived on their ancestral lands for more than 8,000 years.

Pulitzer said: “The Mi’kmaq carry the rarest DNA marker in the world which comes from the ancient Levant (the eastern Mediterranean). You can’t screw with DNA.”

The report details a number of Mi’kmaq petroglyphs (carved images) on cave walls and boulders along riverbanks in Nova Scotia. Some of these images, first discovered in the 1800s, depict what Pulitzer’s team believe to be Roman legionnaires marching with their swords - and Roman ships.

Myron Paine, author and former South Dakota State University professor, notes there are numerous ancient pictographs in the area which show voyages, advanced learning, foreign symbols, ancient peoples and ancient mariners.

Pulitzer adds: “There are also 50 words in the Mi’kmaq language which are ancient nautical sailing terms used by ancient mariners from Roman times - but they were not a seafaring culture.

“Another very interesting ‘coincidence’ is a bush on Oak Island and one on the mainland which is listed in Canada as an invasive species (Berberis Vulgaris). “This was used by ancient mariners, including Romans, to season their food and fight scurvy. It grows in Oak Island and across the way in Halifax. All these things, signs and symbols add up to more than just coincidence.”

Two carved stones on Oak Island also ‘possess a language from the ancient Levant’ according to Pulitzer. The first is the famous ‘90ft stone’ which was inscribed with strange symbols and first unearthed in 1803, 90ft down the money pit. The second is the so-called ‘HO stone’ - a large boulder believed to have been sited on the shoreline and inscribed with secret codes for mariners - but later blown up by treasure hunters who thought the treasure was buried beneath. “How can someone in that time have faked that?” he asks. “They wouldn’t have known about that language.”

Other findings detailed in the report include a Roman legionnaire’s whistle found on Oak Island in 1901, a metal ‘boss’ from the centre of a Roman shield unearthed in Nova Scotia in the mid-1800s, and a small Roman head sculpture found in Mexico City in 1933 under foundations of a pre-colonial building dated to between 1476 and 1510.

What Pulitzer’s team believe to be ancient burial mounds were also sited in shallow water close to the western shoreline of Oak Island.

Prof James P. Scherz, of the University of Wisconsin notes these mounds are ‘consistent with ancient European and Levant burial mounds, not native American’.

In the report, Prof Scherz states: “I am in agreement the underwater mounds being of a foreign (ancient mariner style) and not native to Nova Scotia or traditional North American. These mounds, in looking at the known ocean levels for the area, give a possible date of occurring between 1500BC and 180AD.”

Gold Roman Carthage coins have also been discovered on the mainland near Oak Island. A number of these are said to have been found buried in the same location. Pulitzer said: “We had them authenticated by some of the best experts. Yet in the show, they dedicated just 90 seconds to the topic.”

Pulitzer and his team are not the first to put forward a theory that ancient Europeans visited the Americas in pre-Columbian times - with others also pointing to the Minoans and the Phoenecians as having visited the continent.

His report also references the 16th century scholar Marineo Siculo who first claimed it was the Romans who discovered the New World, not Columbus.

However, Pulitzer says, with the new discoveries and modern science, it’s time these findings were taken seriously.

Indeed, he claims such findings in the past were ‘forgotten about and never fully investigated’ as they did not fit with mainstream history.
