    Dear Daniel I do hope you are well.

    You have done great work on the Shroud I must say.

    Dan I am writing a second book on the Shroud. Is it possible I use a small part you have written as below to add in out book?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    “It was a brilliant bit of detective work. Sue Benford and Joseph Marino consulted with several textile experts. They examined the documenting photographs of the carbon 14 samples and other close up photographs of the Shroud. They found clear indications of a discrete repairs to the Shroud. The repair seems to have been what modern tailors call invisible reweaving. This results in an intermingling of new and older thread. Threads are even spliced together. The newer thread is carefully dyed to match the older material so as to make it almost invisible to the naked eye. This was a common method by which artisans repaired valuable tapestries during the middle ages. Enough newer thread was identified so that Ron Hatfield of the Beta Analytic, one of the world largest carbon 14 dating firm, to estimate that had the cloth of the Shroud been 1st century and the new cloth 16th century, the results would have been what the carbon 14 tests had revealed.” (Daniel Porter, ” Medieval Reweaving the Shroud of Turin ,” Shroud of Turin Skeptical Spectacle , 2008).
