Scott Wolter, Keynote Speaker for X-Con 2023

The Knights Templar and the Alien Connection 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 hosted other programs in which he followed the Templar trail in Europe, the Middle East and even North America, leading him into the realm of the Freemasons, medieval monastic orders, pirates, and modern-day Knights Templar. Scott is the author of two books about the Templars and Freemasons including the wildly controversial, The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America and the follow up book, Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers: The Mysteries of the Hooked X. Along with his earlier fact-finding book, The Kensington Rune Stone: Compelling New Evidence, about the controversial artifact discovered in his home state of Minnesota in 1898, Scott presents the details of his continuing research and evidence for his history changing discoveries. Whether it is by way of his books or captivating lectures, Scott explains his quest began with his determination to solve the origin of the mysterious Kensington Rune Stone, which he examined in his lab in 2000, resulting in his stunning scientific finding that it is a genuine medieval artifact, a document inscribed in a native Midwestern rock over 650 years ago, by a party of Templar Knights. But why were they here and where did they come from? What became of them? And did they leave any other evidence they were here? Professionally, Scott, a forensic geologist, has worked as a petrographer since 1985. In 1990, he founded American Petrographic Services and continues to serve as President. He has been the principal petrographer in more than 7,000 material forensic investigations throughout the world, including the evaluation of fire-damaged concrete from the Pentagon following the attacks of September 11, 2001. Scott earned his bachelor’s degree in Geology and Earth Science from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 1982.
