The Newport Tower in Rhode Island was thought to be a Colonial windmill. Structurally unfit to serve as a windmill, architectural and astronomical elements incorporated within during construction are consistent with only one medieval group to have originally built this mysterious stone and mortar structure.
Concrete sample taken through the legs area that was used in petrographic analysis to determine the age of the concrete . Testing was performed to try to establish a time of death for the victim found completely encased in concrete found in a shallow grave in the desert outside of Las Vegas.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Scott Wolter, PG

Scott Wolter, a materials forensic geologist, has worked as a professional petrographer since 1985. In 1990, he founded American Petrographic Services in St. Paul, MN and continues to serve as President. He has been the principal petrographer in more than 7,000 material forensic investigations throughout the world, primarily involving concrete problems such as scaling, low strength, and cracking. In some notable cases, he examined the fire-damaged concrete from the Pentagon following the attacks of September 11, 2001, assisted homicide detectives in a Las Vegas murder case where the victim was entombed in concrete, and has evaluated the age and veracity of several historic artifacts with man-made inscriptions in rock.  

Scott is also known as the host of History Channel’s hit show, America Unearthed, which follows him on his quest to uncover the truth behind controversial historic artifacts and sites found throughout North America and beyond.
