Radiocarbon dating wrong

The authors consider the possibility that neutron emissions by earthquakes could have induced the image formation on Shroud linen fibres, trough thermal neutron capture by Nitrogen nuclei, and provided a wrong radiocarbon dating due to an increment in C 614 content.

As controls, three samples whose ages had been determined independently were also dated.

Radiocarbon dating, a development in atomic physics, is a case in point.

The importance of this scientific method, however, is far reaching, influencing a multitude of various and independent disciplines such as hydrology, geology, atmospheric science and archaeology to name but a few.

The results provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is mediaeval.
