Contaminated carbon dating

Another contributor to the film, John Jackson (Turin Shroud Center of Colorado), while not doubting the validity of the original radiocarbon measurements, has developed a new hypothesis, which he believes may explain why the mediaeval date for the Shroud is incorrect.

All three labs gave a consistent, mediaeval date for the Shroud.

Geologic studies of active tectonism are greatly aided by definition and time calibration of local stratigraphic sequences.

Because all dating techniques may be subject to considerable error, reliability should be assessed by stratigraphic consistency between results of different dating methods or of the same method.

Adequate age control is thus a limiting factor in studies of active tectonism.
