Forum to feature author of latest Runestone book

If your curiosity over the Kensington Runestone was heightened while watching The History Channel documentary, The Holy Grail in America, here's a chance to learn more.

The Kensington Area Heritage Society has arranged a special forum and book signing about the Runestone on Saturday, October 10.

Scott Wolter, petrogeologist and author of the just released book, The Hooked X-Key to Secret North American History, will present results of his research concerning the plausible connection of the inscriptions on the Kensington and other North American rune stones with the Knights Templar.

The documentary was based on Wolter's book.

Wolter's presentation will begin at 1 p.m. and is expected to last about one hour. He will be available to sign copies of his latest book following the presentation.

The event will be held in Kensington's Community Center and the society's museum/research center will be open before and after the presentation.
