Petter Amundsen

Petter Amundsen is a Norwegian organist in Holmenkollen Chapel, Oslo, Norway. Since 2002 he has decrypted a number of steganographic ciphers believed to be hidden in several first editions of William Shakespeare and Sir Francis Bacon’s books. In 2003, Amundsen excavated two sites at the legendary Treasure Island —Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada. His findings didn't go unnoticed, and attracted media attention and amazed many in the local community, among them landowner Dan Blankenship. Many years of research has resulted in a number of publications, TV series and a full feature documentary film. In January 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine published a feature story on Oak Island, “The Curse of Oak Island,” and included parts of Amundsen's theory on Shakespeare and Oak Island. In the late winter of 2006, Amundsen teamed up with the celebrated author Erlend Loe to co-write “Organisten” (“The Organist”), an in-depth version of the discovery, published in eight countries. In December 2009, a four episodes TV-series, “Shakespeares skjulte koder” (“Shakespeare: The Hidden Codes”), was broadcasted on Norwegian National Television NRK1.  In March 2012, Amundsen published his second book, “Oak Island & The Treasure Map in Shakespeare,” an updated and compact version of the discoveries. In April 2012, a full feature documentary, “Shakespeare: The Hidden Truth,” was released in Norwegian cinemas.
