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?

Here’s an email I received this morning from Hugh Farey, a now frequent and welcome contributor to this otherwise semi-dormant blog: Hi Colin, A couple of days ago I completed a series of photos, at Thibault’s request, to illustrate my … Continue reading
I was blogging some 6 years ago on a then recently-published book by Stephen Oppenheimer called “The Origins of the British”, starting with “Discover your inner Basque”. The author’s thesis was eye-catching, generating quite a few newspaper reviews, so I … Continue reading
Time maybe to re-think the received wisdom about the entire Shroud image being “highly superficial”?
Stop press: this posting of mine, probably the last for a while, possibly the VERY LAST, unless or until the Shroudosphere sees a major significant new development, has been described on The Other Site as a “better posting, perhaps his … Continue reading
A question for Stephen Jones re his so-called “wounds” on the Shroud (not to be confused with bloodstains)
Stephen Jones: your latest post focuses on “wounds” and bloodstains on the Shroud. (See also Dan Porter’s current posting which alerted me to it). Nowhere do you define what you mean by “wound”, yet you use the terms “wounds” and … Continue reading
Time maybe for a radical re-jigging of the scorch model – and of the alleged superficiality of the Shroud image too?
I’ve been exchanging emails with Hugh Farey recently. He’s been sending some impressive photographs of linen fibres, before and after scorching. There’s currently the beginnings of an exchange of views on the importance or otherwise of the primary cell wall … Continue reading
Research update (Saturday am ): unrelated to this post. Hugh Farey has emailed some very pretty pictures of linen fibres taken under high magnification which I shall display in a day or two. The question that is bothering both of … Continue reading
It would seem that those linen fibre nodes, aka dislocations, are prime targets for a thermal imprint from a hot template (“scorch mark”)
Updated at 18:20 Wed – see my email reply to Hugh Farey at the end. I made a brief mention of linen fibre nodes, aka dislocations, in a recent post. It is those dislocations that give linen threads their distinctive … Continue reading
