Radiocarbon dating of the shroud of turin
It also listed the findings of an international group of 24 scientists that the Shroud of Turin was surviving evidence of the crucified Christ and an experts assertion that the material, weave and style of the shroud were from the Dead Sea area, dating from the first century AD" (Brendan Whitings "The Shroud Story" rebuts scientific carbon dating tests while presenting readers with supported insight into the most recent compelling explanations.
Brendan presents scientific evidence in laymans terms the fabric edges appear to have been mended in medieval times via a meticulous re-weaving process.
The average of all three dates is 33 BC 250 years".
A series of experiments conducted by Italian researchers indicate the Shroud of Turin is likely authentic, but the team has not yet reached a definite conclusion.

The third was a multi-parametric mechanical test based on five different mechanical parameters linked to the voltage of the wire.
Gum arabic was routinely used during re-weaving repairs to manage the threads.
His book, The Shroud Story, published in 2006, rebutted scientific tests carried out in 1988, that interpreted the shroud as a fraud made in the 14th century.
It renewed support for the authenticity of the Shroud on the persuasive grounds that the tiny samples of cloth taken for chemical testing were remnants of nearly invisible mending done in the Middle Ages and that in 2005 further examination of the corner of the cloth from which samples for testing were taken proved to be different in chemical composition from the main part of the cloth.
This website focuses on the latest dating challenges of the Shroud of Turin.
Although most Christians consider the Shroud to be the genuine burial cloth of Jesus, the results of the 1988 c-14 (carbon-14) dating has been puzzling.
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.
