(Don’t) start digging….. The pirate treasure on Schiermonnikoog

The mistery of the sunken island Bosch

Another ‘true story’, illustrated with a cartoon.  Bosch was an island that lay between Schiermonnikoog and Rottumeroog, on the north coast of the Netherlands. Inhabited up untill 1570, the island was practically washed away by the All Saints Flood of 1570, and then completely disappeared during the Christmas Flood of 1717.


But this merely is the accepted version of what had happened. Researches at the MISPWOSO came with a theory that challenges the commonly accepted story. It includes a pirate, a parrot and a – until now still hidden – treasure.
