Welcome to the Shroud mystery
A carbon 14 test carried out in 1988 in controversial circumstances has branded the Shroud of Turin a fake. Despite the fact that millions of the faithful still flock to see it the Shroud's reputation as an object worthy of study is fading fast. However, nearly a quarter of a century on, no one has successfully been able to explain or replicate it and further historical and forensic evidence has emerged that challenges the C14 verdict. It remains an enigma.

Historian, Ian Wilson (right), was first to find the historic trail of the Shroud and is the author of three best-sellers on the subject.
