The Shroud of Turin, the controversial piece of linen that some believe to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, could finally be dated accurately.
A new method "stands to revolutionize radiocarbon dating," according to a new research.
A new method "stands to revolutionize radiocarbon dating," according to research presented on Tuesday at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in San Francisco.
"It expands the possibility for analyzing museum collections that have previously been off limits because of their rarity or intrinsic value," Marvin Rowe, professor emeritus at Texas A&M University College Station, said.
The Turin shroud already underwent carbon-14 dating in 1988.At that time, three reputable laboratories in Oxford, Zurich and Tucson, Ariz., concluded that the cloth on which the smudged outline of the body of a man is indelibly impressed was a medieval fake dating from 1260 to 1390, and not the burial cloth wrapped around the body of Christ.However, the radiocarbon dating did not prevent many scholars from formulating various hypotheses over the validity of the carbon-14 tests, including the possibility that they were conducted on a sample taken from a medieval patch.So far Rowe and his colleagues used the technique to analyze the ages of about 20 different organic substances, including wood, charcoal, leather, rabbit hair, a bone with mummified flesh attached, and a 1,350-year-old Egyptian weaving.The results match those of conventional carbon dating techniques, they say.
