Scientists to Restudy Desert Shroud

Ad Feedback - JERUSALEM, Israel - An Israel Museum conservator says restudying a 6,000-year-old shroud from the Judean Desert may shed new light on the Shroud of Turin.

Olga Negnevitsky, one of the museum's staff members who helped preserve the shroud after its discovery in a cave near Jericho, would like to reexamine the ancient find using updated methods.

"If we reexamine the shroud with all the latest modern technology, then maybe we will find out more information that will help solve the secrets of the Shroud of Turin," she said.

From 1998 to 2003, the Judean shroud was on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Afterward, it could be viewed at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, before being stored by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA).

Negnevitsky and her colleagues are hoping the IAA will grant permission to restudy the Judean shroud, discovered not too far from where the Shroud of Turin was found.

"This is another source that could shed light on the mystery of the Shroud of Turin," Professor Amos Notea, from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, said.

"It was here the whole time, but no one connected it until now," said the professor.
