Even allowing for errors in the measurements and assumptions about storage conditions, the cloth is unlikely to be as young as 840 years." "A gum/dye/mordant [(for affixing dye)] coating is easy to observe on... No other part of the shroud shows such a coating." "The radiocarbon sample had been dyed.
