Guest: Scott Wolter, forensic geologist, TV show host
You may know Scott from his H2 show, America Unearthed (which has been renewed for another season!) or his book, The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America. Come listen in as we talk about evidence of the North American's contact with Europeans before Columbus set foot on land after crossing the Atlantic and the intricate, advanced evidence left behind that orthodox historians leave ignored.
While working his "day job" as a world-renowned forensic geologist and the president of the Minnesota based American Petrographic Services, Scott Wolter began developing 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 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. Now, in 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.
Scott also worked on the Pentagon concrete support members to evaluate the fire damage after the 911 attack. His analysis of the damage to the concrete was used to help determine if the damaged area should be surgically repaired or the entire section removed. They ended up removing the entire section since the fire was so hot from burning jet fuel that it did extensive damage. He is very proud to have been part of the effort to rebuild the Pentagon by the 1 year anniversary of the attack.
