Carbon dating shroud of dr ducks dating service
For a few decades, accounts have been circulating about alleged dating work done on a piece of the Shroud of Turin in the early 1980s.Unfortunately, the accounts have been largely unsubstantiated, vague, and inconsistent.
This did not resemble medieval linen that was field bleached.
Many people could cover these topics better than I can. One account will associate the test with the University of California, whereas another will associate it with Caltech. There are some significant similarities among the accounts, but accompanied by some significant differences. There probably are some eyewitnesses and/or other individuals who could come forward with significant information on these matters. In an email to me, William Meacham said, "Heller told me the test was done by the Livermore lab, but he didn't mention any person's name.
Other people are more knowledgeable of the background issues, are in a better position to get more information, and so forth. He also said that starch had been identified on the thread. We need to be careful in judging whether a difference is a contradiction and, if it is one, how significant that contradiction is. He did say however that there was nothing written down and it would be denied by the people who did the test." I've come across three names of scientists allegedly involved in carrying out the test, and I want to address each.
Finally, and significantly, Rogers found that vanillin had been depleted from the main body of the Shroud but not from the mended corner.
This could only mean that the carbon dating sample was not representative of the whole cloth and that the cloth was much older.
The most plausible explanation for this difference was that material in this area contained threads that had been bleached more efficiently.
