A full discussion of the topic must therefore include the current scientific challenge to the OE concept.
Even for the first investigation, there was a possibility of using radiocarbon dating to determine the age of the linen from which the shroud was woven.
The size of the sample then required, however, was ~500cm, which would clearly have resulted in an unacceptable amount of damage, and it was not until the development in the 1970s of small gas-counters and accelerator-mass-spectrometry techniques (AMS), requiring samples of only a few square centimetres, that radiocarbon dating of the shroud became a real possibility. The shroud was separated from the backing cloth along its bottom left-hand edge and a strip (~10 mm x 70 mm) was cut from just above the place where a sample was previously removed in 1973 for examination.

Most people accept the current old-earth (OE) age estimate of around 4.6 billion years.
From the mapped field relationships, it is a simple matter to work out a geological cross-section and the relative timing of the geologic events.
