- A new take in pictures on an old artefact – the (not really a) Shroud of Turin, more an imaginative 14th century marketing wheeze.
- Did you know there is a high-definition image of the Turin Shroud (most of it still under wraps)?
- OK, so there is bilirubin in the Shroud bloodstains (or so we are told). But how much precisely?
- Shroud Scope 10: my very own gallery of 20 close-up views of the Shroud – all lightly photo-edited for optimised colour-differentiation
- Critique of Rogers' so-called vanillin clock for dating the Shroud: why was Stanley T. Kosiewicz not a co-author (and where's the data)?
- It would seem that those linen fibre nodes, aka dislocations, are prime targets for a thermal imprint from a hot template ("scorch mark")
- Raymond N Rogers: STURP supremo chemist (RIP) who sadly lost the plot (due to an apparent blind spot, it would seem, for those ultra-thin and highly superficial primary cell walls of flax and linen fibres).
- Refining a model: children's 'invisible ink' trick with lemon juice allows thermal imprinting ("scorching") at a much reduced temperature
- Is the Man on the Turin Shroud a pseudo-negative imprint from a DEATH MASK? (Could that be why the modern-day photographic negative looks so much better than the original?).
- Shroud Scope 8: 372 impossible scourge marks (surely?) on the Shroud of Turin

As the title indicates, I find the nitpicking over weft v warp somewhat tedious. They are just words for the two sets of threads mutually at right angles, and even if I have confused the two – which I’m willing … Continue reading
Links to my immediate three-part response to Thibault Heimburger’s critique of the scorch hypothesis
Thibault’s critique (with an artistic touch or two…) My response in three separate instalments; Part 1 Link Part 2 Link Part 3 Link Given that’s quite a slug of information and argument/rebuttal there. I guess some kind of summary … Continue reading
Yes, there is clear evidence of tenting, Thibault, with all-or-nothing imaging (yet another nail in the coffin for radiation models)
Here is my reply to the second part of the comment placed yesterday by Thibault Heimburger on that Other Site– the one hosted by the enigmatic Dan Porter and which is giving me daily stick for pressing on with my … Continue reading
‘ Those who have been following my most recent postings will know that I had a kind of eureka moment a couple of days ago. I refer to the idea that the blood on the Shroud was not applied as … Continue reading
This is an instant response to a post that has appeared on The Other Site, in which I am taken to task for underestimating the ability of blood to resist biodegradation. Stone age tools have been mentioned, with Thibault Heimburger … Continue reading
I’ve just received a long comment (see below) on my “Sorry Mr.Rogers” posting from Dr. Heimburger (whom I shall now refer to more informally as Thibault) . It is not so much directed at the specifics of what I said … Continue reading
