The Kensington Rune Stone: Compelling New Evidence (Paperback)
About the Author
Forensic geologist Scott Wolter, best known as the host of History Channel's hit show "America Unearthed", which follows him on his quest to uncover the truth behind controversial historic artifacts and sites found throughout North America, and beyond. He also co-hosted History's "Pirate Treasure of the Knights Templar" about late 17th Century pirate shipwrecks, Freemasons, and the Knights Templar. Scott is also the author of several books including "Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers: The Mysteries of the Hooked X" and "The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America." Together these books cover the story of his continuing research and resulting discoveries made over the past 18 years, beginning with his on-going quest to uncover the mysteries of the controversial Kensington Rune Stone he examined from 2000 thru 2005. The Kensington Rune Stone is a medieval document carved in rock which Scott proposed is a land claim, carved in Minnesota in 1362, by a party of Templar Knights. Scott graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Geology and Earth Science from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 1982. Professionally, Scott, a forensic geologist, has worked as a petrographer since 1985. In 1990, he founded American Petrographic Services and continues to serve as its President. He has been the principal petrographer in more than 9,000 material investigations throughout the world, including the evaluation of fire-damaged concrete from the Pentagon following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
