Runestone to be on TV

Posted on Updated on


A new angle on the Runestone puts Kensington on the map for history buffs.

“The Holy Grail in America” is scheduled to air on The History Channel.

The two-hour documentary, produced by Maria Awes, a former WCCO producer, and her husband, Andy Awes, investigates a story that begins in medieval Europe and culminates in a present day search for answers.

Local footage includes a reenactment of the discovery of the stone at the Kensington Runestone Park with Corey Okonek playing the role of Olaf Ohman and Michael O’Loughlin playing the role of Ohman’s neighbor.

In addition, footage was shot in the Olaf Ohman home located at the park. Filming also took place at the Runestone Museum in Alexandria and of the actual Kensington Runestone.

The story, according to The History Channel, begs the question: “Is it possible the Templars were leaving clues to an incredible journey to the New World?”

History indicates that the Templars were massacred after King Philip IV of France ordered their arrests on Friday the 13th, 1307, but that a Templar fleet allegedly containing treasure was last seen off Scotland in the late 1300s. Stones with similar markings as the Kensington Runestone have been found on islands across the Atlantic Ocean – and in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

According to Maria Awes, the Templar angle of the story is new and that it stems from erosion studies conducted on the Runestone. The symbols on the Runestone reportedly match Templar runes all over Europe.

The Kensington Runestone has been a subject of controversy since Ohman found the stone in 1898. This documentary shares the new evidence, one more clue to the truth behind this local treasure.

    I very recently discovered “sacred geometry” at the Kinsington Runestone site by playing with a ruler for an intense few hours. I actually broke the special code which hid the stone within the geometric design. I am not making this up. I discovered that the Runestone itself served as the hook in the special X the Templars used. This is the first time I am making this public. Double check it out for yourself. Using the special stone-hole map in the book “The Hooked X, you can outline the outer boulders yourself and then cross each boulder inside the design once. You will find the special hooked X. Build on the way the other white lines in the book were made and consider the information about how one large boulder had been moved and to discount the smaller boulder circles. You will be amazed to find that the journey to MN in 1362 is absolutely true, and now there is further proof. Again, the Runestone was found exactly at the hook. Email me if you are intrigued or need help finding the special hooked X within the special sacred geometry. My name is Voyles, and I am very happy to help set the historical record straight!

    My name is Robert Voyles, and I reside in Bloomington, Minnesota. On June 25th, 2010, I successfully de-coded the exact manner in which a returning Norse party would be able to quickly relocate what is now known as the Kensington Runestone.

    After making their way back to the general area, they would find the large boulders the 1362 expedition had marked with “stone-holes,” and then they would outline the perimeter of the boulders and use a special formula of triangulation to discover the hidden geometric design. Then they would simply look for a large X in the design, already knowing that the very important stone they wanted to dig up could found right there in that one spot—exactly where the future Kensington Runestone did in fact turn up over five hundred years later!

    This discovery will have serious repercussions on American history, because what I’m disclosing is that I found a special Knights Templar X over the Runestone Park site—within a deliberate and purposeful man-made geometric design. And I also discovered that the Kensington Runestone itself had been placed in such as way as to serve as the hook on the hidden X! Historians should not be surprised by this discovery, as the Runestone was already shown to have secret Templar X’s on it several years ago by Scott Wolter, a geologist from Chanhassan who recently wrote the book entitled, “The Hooked X, Key to the Secret History of North America.”

    In his new book, Mr. Wolter does a beautiful job of weaving together several examples of Templar usage of the hooked X in both Europe and America…including those exhibited on the Kensington Runestone itself. Most Americans would be shocked to learn that Christopher Columbus used the hooked X within his signature! In my opinion, Mr. Wolter did an extremely good job of presenting the available stone-hole information known about the Runestone Park site. He presented it in such a way—with a map even—that I was able to triangulate the stone-hole boulders over and over again with a ruler until I was finally able to extract the correct formula from the mess of crisscrossing chaos. I was stunned when I first saw the complete geometric design containing the deliberately made hooked X staring me right in the face! Everything had been frustrating and nonsensical until I finally ran all the lines the correct way, as a returning Knights Templar party knowing the formula would have done right away.

    The “code breaker,” if you will, was to use each and every large boulder on site for the outline of the geometric design—including the boulder that had been moved and the two upper ones that weren’t yet connected by Mr. Wolter in his book, and then to use each boulder just once to run each interior line. That’s how the large X was first produced over the site by the Templars, and that’s the same formula used by me to crack the secret Templar code used to bury the stone.

    I believe Minnesotans and history buffs alike will find this new evidence connecting the Kensington Runestone to the Knights Templar very compelling and not overreaching, considering the statistical probability of what I’m claiming in this statement to be true. If professional geometric studies are conducted concerning this incredible new find, I think most people, including ignorant detractors, will conclude that this new evidence is very powerful. In my opinion, this new discovery, this new evidence, is just what the world needs to better understand what the Kensington Runestone is all about.

    I’m making this statement available as soon as possible because I want people everywhere to be able to see this new and compelling evidence connecting the Kensington Runestone to the Knights Templar. I especially want historians to quickly see and appreciate the historical significance of this recent find. Finally, if geometric studies can be made where other concentrations of stone-holes are found, maybe another purposeful geometric design can be found… maybe containing another purposeful X—and maybe even having another runestone serving as the hook on the X! That’s just how important this new discovery may be. It’s another piece of the history puzzle to build upon, and that’s why I’m urging folks to seriously consider this new information and to tell others about it. My hope is that this amazing new discovery will quickly begin to wind its way into the hearts and minds of people everywhere.

    Check out the website for important new information concerning all the medieval Nordic evidences found in MN, brought together all in one spot just recently, Summer/Fall 2010. You have to go to the contact page and hit the history link. If you want to help me in a contest, you can, but you must act by the end of Feb. 2011. Thanks.
