Saw this originally on the History Channel and was so impressed that I wanted to share it with a friend. Whether you are religious or not, this is an absolutely fascinating account of putting a real face to the outline on the Shroud of Turin. It is quite scientific and does not try to make you believe one way or the other–just factual scientific and technological methods that were used to construct what the face would have looked like–and it was a lot harder to do than I had ever imagined. It also delves into the history of the shroud and the one time when scientists were allowed to inspect and study the shroud first hand for five days. I cannot recommend this highly enough for anyone regardless of their beliefs or non-beliefs. It leaves you to make up your own mind.
