    1. The Kensington Runestone is an interesting and unique curiosity of Minnesota history and folklore that was for decades seen as little more than a goofy Scandinavian-American roadside attraction of no real historical importance. Recently, however, researchers like Scott Wolter have vividly revived the debate regarding the origins of the runic inscription, which purports to date from the fourteenth century. Wolter, a forensic geologist, claims his analysis indicates the age of the carvings predate [...]


    2. This is not a spoiler, this information is expected to be known to the reader prior to reading the book.Very disappointing argument for authenticity of Kensington Rune Stone. Basically in 1362 Templars and Cistercians traveled across Atlantic to claim a piece of land in Minnesota, which half millennium later was acquired by middle-class (at most) emigrant from Norway. They've left signs around the farm by making triangle signs on bunch of glacial stones and making inscription on a stone and bury [...]


    3. Interesting investigating and conclusions. The author made it all sound very plausible and sensible. My biggest complaint was the editing/proof reading. It was one of the sloppiest, error-ridden books I've ever read. It looked as if quite a few editing changes were made and then not carried through to fit with the rest of the sentence or thought. Really distracting to me and I'm ashamed to say it was published by a firm in MN. Someone either was in a hurry or didn't care about the quality of the [...]


    4. I became familiar with this author while watching the History Channel show, America Unearthed. The author, Scott Wolter, claims that there were Europeans who explored North America before Columbus. The show and this book lay out the evidence for his claim. For what it's worth, I think Wolter makes a pretty good case for his contention. Not my normal literary fare, but it was interesting. If you like history, archaeology, geology, philology, and runology (the philological discipline not runic "ma [...]


    5. Interesting reading, to an extent was a little dry for me. Lots of black & white photos. I prefer to watch his TV show, America Unearthed!


    6. I found this book quite readable and informative. The main focus is an updating on his work regarding the Kensington Rune Stone. Mr. Wolter had written with another person his detailed study of first encountering the rune stone. I had not read that work.This book was written in the format of his personal case study journal. We are taken through the events by day, told whom was present, and given an extensive reference and index for further study, is the reader chooses to.The Hooked X is one of t [...]


    7. This is book about the "Hooked X" which is male (x), female (v) and the child (hook). Scott Wolter has several books to him name and the Unearthing Ancient America series which was on the History Channel. This is the book the research that launched the series. This book talks about the controversial theory that there were Europeans in the United States or New world before Columbus. He traces his theory from examination of the Kensington Rune Stone which was found in Minnesota by Olaf Ohman in th [...]


    8. Done much like Holy Blood, Holy Grail (I think that’s the title) but this is about establishing that the Knights Templar or their cohorts were in America long before Columbus. A few interesting points but mainly suffered from confirmation bias. I did appreciate some of the historical notes and very much appreciated learning about the Horns of Venus.


    9. This was a very poorly written book. I should have read the reviews before starting it. I did learn a few facts but most of the book was speculation. I wouldn't recommend it.


    10. This book was eye opening. Wolter's premise is that members of the Knights Templar and the Cistercian order came to the US during the 1300's! His research begins with a rune stone that was discovered buried on a farm in Kensington, MN in the 1890's. On the surface the notion that Europeans have been to North America as early as the middle ages seems like pseudo or fringe science but Wolter does an excellent job of going through his and others' evidence bit by bit. He's logical and concise and pr [...]


    11. This book is amazing I found out about this book through his show America Unearthed on history 2 channel. It's a must read I'm literally hooked on the hooked x !! I'm reading his second book the mysteries of the hooked X this is an eye opening to the history I knew and was taught is amazing and compelling the findings that Scott has found.


    12. Wolter investigates a rune dating back to the 1300's. His reasoning makes a lot of sense and I think proves that North America was discovered before Columbus. After the halfway mark Wolter goes into some areas that I'm not sure that I believe and some parts were dry, but the first half was interesting.


    13. A very interesting book that shows the author's pain staking work in exploring the possibilities of other cultures in Pre Columbian America. The book is a bit tedious at times but I found it worth wading through for much good information and theories. Scott's networking with other dedicated investigators and professionals also deserves attention.


    14. Picked this book up after watching the show America unearthed. The book was much more enjoyable and entertaining than the over dramatic television show. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the show and wants to learn more about the early history of North America.


    15. Since I had just watched the TV show on the same subject, this was pretty much just a rehash with more details that I really didn't care about. So, I read some of the most interesting parts and skimmed the rest.


    16. Enjoyed it. I am interested in medieval and other historical times. Some of his conclusions strike me as being leaps of faith but I look forward to the results of studies by other scientists on this fascinating subject.


    17. This book was a slow read at some points, but a very good book that makes one think. I recommend it to anyone interested in the Knights Templar and those that think it is HIGHLY likely that Jesus and Mary Magdelene were married and had a child/children.


    18. Well researched and thoroughly documented. The case for the validity of Templars in North America in 1362 seems fairly clear. This was certainly worth a read.





    19. worth the read but I lost interest somewhere after the mid point. The presentation seemed to follow a combination of both topical and chronological, which was confusing.


    20. An interesting read but a little redundant. Has mostly to do with Kensington Stone which dates to the late 14th century. A stone with runes on it is discovered in Minnesota.
