As controls, three samples whose ages had been determined independently were also dated. PY - 1989Y1 - 1989N2 - Very small samples from the Shroud of Turin have been dated by accelerator mass spectrometry in laboratories at Arizona, Oxford and Zurich. Although of negligible scientific value, they represent a major public triumph for the AMS method of carbon dating. Believing is Seeing: A Perspective on Perceiving Images of Objects on the Shroud of Turin. The author concludes that, although the procedures followed differed substantially from those recommended at a workshop organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the results are credible.
The quoted final results produced a calibrated calendar age range of AD 1260–1390 for the linen of the Turin shroud at a 95% confidence level.
Arizona laboratory had four pieces wich weighed: 12.39, 14.72, 11.83 and 13.86. Bonnet Eymard gave the weight of 14.27 instead of 14.72. or this is one of the many inaccuracies given by the Laboratory?
is important because it shows that the weights provided by Prof. There is a larger size at: Jull should be providing information about the facts of the 1988 carbon dating rather than a testimony of what he doesn’t see in a sample of unclear provenance and evidence chain.
As controls, three samples whose ages had been determined independently were also dated.
