Overview: Learn how artifacts are aged and how the “official” age of the shroud might be in question.
Three independent scientific labs yielded a calibrated calendar age range with at least 95% confidence that dated the linen of the Shroud of Turin around AD 1260 – 1390 (±10 yrs.). These results provided evidence that the Shroud of Turin was not the reported cloth that Jesus Christ was wrapped in after the crucifixion. This session will address how artifacts are aged and a take a closer examination of how the “official” age of the shroud might be in question.
