[ARCHIVED] History Channel's Scott Wolter to Give Special Talk in Mankato

The Blue Earth County Library System is bringing Scott Wolter, author and host of History 2 (H2) Channel’s “America Unearthed”, to the Verizon Wireless Center on Thurs., Nov. 13, 2014 at 7 p.m. for a special program that is free and open to the public. Wolter is a world-renowned forensic geologist and President of the Minnesota-based American Petrographic Services. He began developing a new science called archaeopetrography, a scientific process used to date and understand the origins and mysterious stone artifacts and sites. The first artifact Wolter studied using this new science was the Kensington Rune Stone. Wolter will discuss his studies, discoveries and experiences with his television series in addition to answering questions from the audience following his presentation. This program is made possible through a Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative Grant and Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
