image details

Description
Metal tube used to transport a sample of the Turin Shroud from Turin to OXford to be radiocarbon dated by the Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit at Oxford. On the container's label is the Archbishop of Turin's seal. The body of the crucified Christ was reputedly wrapped in a shroud, and was said to have created a life-size image still visible on the cloth. Radiocarbon analysis of tiny samples of the shroud showed that in fact the cloth was from medieval times.
