UPDATED: Values for measurements by Giulio Fanti have been added.

Something else is strange about the sample Jull used in his recent paper in Radiocarbon. Notice that other researchers found higher warp thread counts than weft counts. And the counts were very similar. Jull found the opposite. Did he confuse warp with weft? We have to wonder. Or is this NOT a piece of cloth from the Shroud of Turin?


Indeed, it may not be part of the Shroud because the fragment also seems to be a 2-over-1 twill fragment rather than a 3-over-1 fragment, which is what we would get from the Shroud.

Does the Jull paper produce any useful information at all? Does Jull not realize that there are problems that need to be addressed?
