Scott Wolter | The Hooked X | Truth Connections Radio


Scott Wolter is the host of the hit television series, America Unearthed, a world-renowned forensic geologist and the president of the Minnesota-based American Petrographic Services, Scott developed a new science called archaeopetrography--a scientific process used to date and understand the origins of mysterious stone artifacts and sites.

The first artifact Scott studied using this new science was the Kensington Rune Stone, which he believes is an authentic, pre-Columbian land claim carved here in America by none other than the Knights Templar. The Kensington Rune Stone was the subject of a documentary special called Holy Grail in America that aired on HISTORY in 2009. The Kensington Rune Stone special chronicled Scott's 10-year pursuit of the origin and meaning of the Hooked X symbol which appears on the Kensington Rune Stone and on four other North American rune stones.

The film also presents his and other researchers' ventures into the largely unknown and mysterious world of European visitors to North America prior to Columbus and was the forerunner to the current TV series America Unearthed on the History Channel. While hosting this series, America Unearthed on H2, Scott has the chance to use forensic geology and archaeopetrography to explore many other untold stories in American history, changing everything we think we know about our past. The show follows him on his quest to uncover the truth behind historic artifacts and sites found throughout North America. He is on a mission using hard science and intuitive theories to explain the most mysterious artifacts and sites in America.

Wolter explores everything from modern-day mysteries at the Denver Airport and pre-Columbian contact theories to tales of treasure in the Grand Canyon and legends involving storied artifacts like the Ark of the Covenant. What he unearths continues to prove there are plenty of secrets buried in America's past. He has been the principal petrographer in more than 5,000 investigations throughout the world, including the evaluation of fire-damaged concrete at the Pentagon following the attacks of September 11, 2001.

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, which covers the story of his continued research and resulting discoveries made over the last 12 years, including his ongoing quest to uncover the mysteries of the controversial Kensington Rune Stone which he studied in 2001.
