interesting snippet - BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Turin shroud 'older than thought'

"The fact that vanillin cannot be detected in the lignin on shroud fibres, Dead Sea scrolls linen and other very old linens indicates that the shroud is quite old," Mr Rogers writes.

"A determination of the kinetics of vanillin loss suggests the shroud is between 1,300 and 3,000 years old."

I wonder if they are going to allow a whole new testing iteration now.
