Carbon dating of the turin shroud
They conceded, however, that it would take a significant amount of data to convince museum directors, art conservators and possibly the Vatican that the new, non-invasive method indeed causes no damage.
It has been on display only five times in the past century.
However, scientists are willing to point out the flaw in their findings.
The third was a multi-parametric mechanical test based on five different mechanical parameters linked to the voltage of the wire.The machine used to examine the Shroud's fibres and test traction, allowed researchers to examine tiny fibres alongside about twenty samples of cloth dated between 3000 BC and 2000 AD."Final results show that the Shroud fibres examined produced the following dates, all of which are 95% certain and centuries away from the medieval dating obtained with Carbon-14 testing in 1988: the dates given to the Shroud after FT-IR testing, is 300 BC 400, 200 BC 500 after Raman testing and 400 AD 400 after multi-parametric mechanical testing.This website focuses on the latest dating challenges of the Shroud of Turin.
