My name is Zena Halpern. I have spent the past 10 years chasing down a fascinating story, a story that could change history as we know it. It is the story both of a secret 12th century Knights Templar mission to Oak Island and a mountain range in New York State, and of the efforts made by various secret societies over the centuries to either conceal or uncover the reasons for this mission.
It is also my story over the past decade, pulling together disparate evidence from somewhat shady characters and looking for other sources to prove or disprove this strange story.
Here, then, is my life’s work. Some will believe the story uncovered by my research to be a hoax. If so, it would be the most elaborate hoax in the history of hoaxes. And to what end? Who spends a century cobbling together false clues and fake artifacts just to have a laugh at an octogenarian’s expense?
But I get ahead of myself. Read on. Read my story. Read of the amazing journey to America by the medieval Templars. Read of the fascinating efforts over the centuries to both conceal the journey and later uncover its secrets. Read about the Vatican and the CIA—they all play a part in this adventure. Read about treasures and ciphers and betrayals, as well as Oak Island.
My research is not complete, unfortunately. There are still questions unanswered. But 90% will have to do. I can wait no longer to share this with the world.
A hoax? You be the judge.
