Welcome to the site
- A solution (at last!) to the Turin Shroud – based on my 5 years of continuous experimental research.
- Does an imprint of my unquestionably human hand onto fabric possess UNIQUE 3D properties (like, er, that supposedly ‘supernatural’ Turin Shroud) ?
- My revised Model 10, proposing a key role for RADIANT (infrared) heat in generating image colour from a body imprint onto wet linen, using nothing but dry white flour.
- My Model 10 – thermal imprinting with white flour onto linen – can account for the curious properties of the Turin Shroud body image
- STURP: Space-age Technology Unleashing Religious Propaganda!
- Comment promoted: what are we to make of the second face on the reverse side of the Turin Shroud?
- Might those be flecks of congealed wheat gluten one sees on the Turin Shroud? Evidence for unique one-off white flour imprinting?
- What’s Dan Porter up to these days (Christmas 2016, 1 year after finally closing his Shroud of Turin blog)?
- The Turin Shroud – surely the most cunning, dastardly con trick in history (14th century France)
- Might invisible ink technology (mere child’s play) have been superbly fine-tuned to achieve whole body imaging?
- Shroud Question 1 from David Goulet: it’s to do with the testability of my 14th century flour-imprinting model.
- Final posting in previous stodgy site format: “Shroud of Turin – and now for a retrospective look at the boring old (systematic) science”
- Modelling the Shroud of Turin with white flour, olive oil and a real face – in pictures.
- More original, cutting edge stuff from Hugh Farey appears in his latest BSTS Newsletter No.82 (December 2015)
- Contact prints from a 3D figure will always be wider and suffer from wrap-around distortion. True or false?

The Turin Shroud Man is not a photograph, but a negative THERMOGRAPH – and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise…
Stop Press: see my new Shroud site The composite pictures above (added 9th March) showing three operational steps, and the 8 photographs below, would seem to this retired science bod to leave little room for doubt that the Turin Shroud … Continue reading
One very good reason why the Turin Shroud could not POSSIBLY have been produced by scorching onto linen – and 10 even better ones why it could.
Stop press (added 12th March): I have added to the end of this post a section on the work of Irene Corgiat, pyrographical artist par excellence, who has produced a remarkable simulation of the face on the Shroud using her … Continue reading
Modelling the image of the Turin Shroud – an interrupted experiment using onion epidermis – just one cell thick.
Stop Press: updated Wed 11:00 London Time with a near CONCLUSIVE result of the interrupted experiment (having broken off to respond to Dr. Di Lazzaro, he of the excimer uv laser beam model): see below. Introduction One criticism that I … Continue reading
The Shroud of Turin – let’s focus on that hemicellulose coating on the linen fibres … It could explain a great deal
Yes, hemicellulose is, I now believe, the answer. Each fibre in the yarn, or which there are reckoned to be some 200 per thread, comprises a core of physically and chemically resistant cellulose microfibrils, and the entire assembly is then … Continue reading
Turin Shroud (cropped, with original light/dark reversal that looks better when viewed as a photographic negative) Has scorching been conclusively ruled out, as many would have us believe? Let’s look the evidence. It breaks down into at least 8 most-frequently-cited … Continue reading
