Author and geologist Scott Wolter's tome, The Kensington Rune Stone: Compelling New Evidence, will deal with his research into those strange rune stones that crop up now and again. As I have written about in Strange State: Mysteries and Legends of Oklahoma, the Sooner State has not only one but several runestones. I don't know yet whether Wolter's work will cover these as well, but I am curious to see his interpretation of the available data. One theory he has is that these Norse runes could have been left by Knights Templar, fleeing persecution in the old world by braving a new one - long before such a thing was known to exist. If you want to read more, you can check out his book or pick up a copy of (shameless plug) mine, in which I cover those discovered in Oklahoma.
