GRAPH SHOWING CARBON 14 ANALYSIS OF THE SHROUD

 

 

CAPTION:
This graph shows the effect of the measured 1st Century linen cloth of added 20th Century carbon (mold, mildew, bacteria, etc.). The "Shroud" weighs about 20 pounds (9 kg.). Approximately 40 pounds (18 kg.) of 20th Century carbon contaminant would be required to raise the measured carbon date to 14th Century.
