The Shroud of Turin

Recent carbon dating has suggested it is a medieval forgery. The carbon dating however may have been picking up medieval overlays of paint and/or fiber.


Studies have revealed some extraordinary details: for example, it was customary to lay Roman coins over the eyes at death in the first century, and there are Roman coins on the figure on the Shroud which are from the right period. However it could still be a very clever later forgery.
