Shroud of turin radiocarbon dating wrong
Phillips and Hedges suggested, in the scientific magazine Nature (1989), that neutron radiation could be liable of a wrong radiocarbon dating, while proton radiation could be responsible of the Shroud body image formation.
On the other hand, no plausible physical reason has been proposed so far to explain the radiation source origin, and its effects on the linen fibres.
However, some recent studies, carried out by the first author and his Team at the Laboratory of Fracture Mechanics of the Politecnico di Torino, found that it is possible to generate neutron emissions from very brittle rock specimens in compression through piezonuclear fission reactions.
It bears an image of a naked man who, according to forensic pathologists, has endured a Roman crucifixion.The image, though clearly perceptible to the eye, is revealed in much more clarity when reversed into a black and white negative. David Rolfe with cameramen David Crute (L) and Mark Lewis (R) filming the Shroud in 2009 for the film "Material Evidence" for the BBC.This is the only time the Turin authorities have allowed the Shroud to be filmed removed from its bomb-proof case.The Shroud's history (in modern times) begins in 1355 but it has links with a much prized long-lost artefact of similar description stolen from Constantinople during the 4th Crusade.This had a viable provenance back to the 1st century and the Holy Lands.
If the Shroud is one and the same as this object then this would explain why it was kept underground until sufficient time had elapsed and why no explanation for its origins were forthcoming from the aristocratic (and crusader-linked) French family that first exhibited it.
