Draft document discovered in the paper-skip at my local recycling centre: “Ten killer arguments for opposing any re-run of the radiocarbon dating.”
Once a month I put all the junk mail into a bin liner and walk it to the recycling centre that is just a handy 1 and 3/4 miles away. (Well, we all have to do our bit for the … Continue reading
Step 1: Obtain the go-ahead from the Shroud’s custodians to repeat that contested radiocarbon dating. Assure them that all samples will be taken from the portion of linen that has the less photogenic DORSAL view. Step 2: select 20 … Continue reading
