Shroud of Turin C-14 Samples Ray Rogers Study of Region Taken Ray Rogers Study of Region Taken From Shroud for Carbon Dating From Shroud for Carbon Dating
Fibers from Region used for dating have a Yellow-brownish color from gum-arabic used in textile applications in 16 th century. Fibers from other parts of shroud do not have the coating. End to end splice – two ends Show different colors and Different amount of coating.
Darn splice used in 16 th century - half covered with starch dates to 13 th century AD, other end claimed to date ~3 century AD. Starched end of Darn
Colored cotton region on a linen thread present in patch region used for carbon dating which is not present on main body of Shroud.
Vanillin is a chemical component present in linen from flax fibers used to weave it. Vanillin disappears over time at a calculated rate. A medieval-age cloth should have 37% vanillin left. The shroud body has no Vanillin indicating that it is years old. Dead Sea scrolls have no Vanillin. Radiocarbon samples have Vanillin.

Lemon-yellow fibers showing black lignin at growth nodes Results published in 2005 Thermochimica Acta by Ray Rogers.
Two cotton fibers – one clean and one colored – The clean one Is from main body of shroud and colored one from repaired region used for carbon dating.

Ray Rogers Conclusions 12/2004 The Sudarium of Oviedo shows all the physical and chemical properties of a very old sample of linen. There is a finite probability that the Sudarium is related in time and location to the Shroud of Turin.
