Our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. I visited Alan's home in Durham on a number of occasions where we discussed and studied his Shroud related research in his impressive basement studio filled with Shroud materials.On one occasion when I was in Jerusalem with the ESSJ expedition Alan tracked me down and asked me to conduct botanical experiments on his behalf with flowers in a tomb complex.You should find this an excellent way to sample the evolving content of this website.And you can also view every previous year's Website News pages at the links below: Today, January 21, 2018, marks our 22nd anniversary on the internet!Watch for more important STURP information in every future update this year.Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia illustrates the program together with don Roberto Gottardo (center), President of the Diocesan Commission for the Shroud, and Fr.

I must also sadly report the passing of long time Shroud scholar and researcher Dr. Whanger, 87, of Durham, North Carolina, at the Duke University Medical Center on October 21, 2017, after a brief illness.
He is survived by Mary Whanger, his wife of 63 years and a noted Shroud scholar in her own right.
However, even more important is the fact that this year also marks the 40th anniversary of the first ever in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud of Turin by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) on October 8-13, 1978.
In commemoration of that historic event, we will be celebrating the anniversary year with some special materials in each of our regular updates and culminating with a Special STURP Update on October 8, 2018, 40 years to the day that we began our examination of the Shroud in 1978.
