Nigel J. Hetherington Owner & Founder of Past Preservers was delighted to appear as a guest expert in a recent episode of The History Channel’s American Unearthed alongside the show’s presenter Forensic Geologist Scott Wolter.
In America Unearthed, forensic geologist Scott Wolter, a real-life Indiana Jones, will reveal that the history we all learned in school may not always be the whole story. Across the country, ancient symbols, religious relics and unexplained artifacts suggest that civilizations from around the world have left their mark for us to find today. Wolter not only digs through the surprising burial ground that is America for archaeological secrets, but he also uncovers compelling evidence that predates the official “discovery” of the New World and turns a lot of what we think we know about American history on its head. America Unearthed proves there is a lot we don’t know about our past, and that people have gone to great lengths to cover up these mysteries.
A Deadly Sacrifice
A man shows up at Scott Wolter’s lab with a 500-pound discovery. In the flatbed of his truck is a large boulder he pulled from the Arkansas River, inscribed with a mysterious bull symbol. Wolter s investigation into who carved the stone and for what ritualistic purpose ultimately reveals a connection between the ancient Egyptian cult of the Apis bull, the mysterious religion known as Mithraism and a party of pre-Columbian explorers to Oklahoma s panhandle. In the end, carvings in a cave in America s Heartland shed light on an ancient connection that could prove a group of religious outcasts made it to America in pre-Columbian times.
American Unearthed is produced by Committee Films.
