Only part of the sample entrusted to the American laboratory was destroyed in the dating process, however; a small part was preserved, Jull revealed today. Freed, specialised in fabrics from archaeological periods, he explains her microphotography analysis in detail.The publication is brief but radical, illustrated with seven photos with a few French words to make the point, that say: “a picture is worth a thousand words (proverb)".Director of the University of Arizona laboratory in Tucson, Arizona in the United States – one of three laboratories the Vatican selected to perform the 1988 analyses – he has published new analyses in the peer-reviewed journal Radiocarbon (2) which Sciences et Avenir has been able to read prior to publication.
He concluded that the sample used for carbon dating was not representative of the cloth. Moreover, one of the chemical differences, the amount of vanillin, provided a new clue about the cloth’s age.
Samples from the main part of the cloth, unlike the carbon 14 sample area, did not contain any vanillin. After a lengthy peer review process, his findings that the carbon dating was wholly invalid were published in the scientific journal Rogers' published work showing that the carbon dating is invalid has been confirmed by John L Brown, a forensic materials specialist at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia and by Robert Villarreal and a team of nine scientists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
It is suggested that steps should be taken to conserve the shroud and that permission should be given for its examination by experts in medieval art.

I want this thread to take some steps in that direction.
An assessment is made of the credibility of the radiocarbon dating of the shroud of Turin.
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.
