The BBC News page currently has an excellent brief intro to the Shroud, with some excellent graphics:
This quote leaped out at me:
>The centre [the International Centre of Sindonology in Turin] plans to produce "an accurate map of the cloth" to discern whether it was made from the same cloth or contains repairs. Once that has been completed the carbon dating will be repeated, he says.
Assuming the Church is going along with that, it's excellent news. A lot of people - not just 'Shroudies' - would like to see that carbon dating repeated to finally put the dating of the Shroud to rest.
