CHASKA, Minn. (WCCO) — A local scientist is solving some of the country’s biggest secrets on national TV.

Scott Wolter is the host of America Unearthed on H-2, and we went inside his lab in Chaska to see how he does what he does.

Wolter, a geologist and president of the Minnesota-based American Petrographic Services, began developing a new science called archaeopetrography. It’s a scientific process used to date and understand the origins of mysterious stone artifacts and sites.

Now, in America Unearthed on H-2, he 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.

His goal is to solve some of the nation’s biggest historical mysteries in a fun and scientific way. It takes him all of the country and the world, but he’s based in Chaska.
