Turin shroud older than thought

 
Chemical analysis shows the cloth that formed the Shroud of Turin is up to 3000 years old


The Shroud of Turin, the piece of linen long-believed to have been wrapped around Jesus' body after the crucifixion, is much older than radiocarbon tests suggest, according to new microchemical research.

Published in the 20 January issue of Thermochimica Acta, a peer-reviewed chemistry journal, the study dismisses the results of the 1988 carbon-14 dating...

According to Tom D'Muhala, the president of the American Shroud of Turin Association for Research, the new chemical tests produced "conclusive evidence". "They indicate that the linen shroud is actually very old, much older than the published 1988 radiocarbon date," D'Muhala says.

Well, he would say that woudn't he... but the evidence is pointing his way.
