The finer weave of 3-over-1 herringbone is consistent with the New Testament statement that the "sindon" (or shroud) was purchased by Joseph of Arimathea, who was a wealthy man.

In the absence of any subsequent corroboration of Tite's and (the Late) Hall's verdict that the Shroud was simply a crude medieval forgery… However, in order to avoid the possibility that the C14 date could be wrong he has come up with an explanation for the cloth's image so unscientific and unsustainable as to be laughable.
David Rolfe is a filmmaker and also now editor of the British Society for the Turin Shroud Newsletter.
There is no additive element such as paint or any other form of pigmentation that forms the image. Its graduated tones vary in density in correlation to the apparent distance a body would have been from the draping cloth.

There are blood stains and wounds on the body that are consistent with a crucifixion but with key forensic details that had became unknown once that form of punishment was abandoned in the 4th century.
This is evidenced by the countless depictions of the crucifixion in Christian art which, though convincing to look at, we now know to be technically impossible.
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.
The weight of evidence that the Shroud of Turin was potentially an authentic - though unfathomable - depiction of Christ grew steadily from the moment it was first photographed in 1898 to 1978 when all the disparate scholarly and scientific research was collated into a single film and book which became an international best seller.
