They are all files and will need rotating clockwise to read.From creepy burials to sunken ships, Bronze Age ancestors of Rodin's "The Thinker" and "speaking" mummies, this year offered extraordinary insight into the past. Egyptian authorities faced embarrassment after supporting the theory that a secret room existed in the tomb of King Tut.In 1988, scientists at three separate laboratories dated samples from the Shroud to a range of AD 1260–1390, which coincides with the first certain appearance of the shroud in the 1350s and is much later than the burial of Jesus. Samples were taken on April 21, 1988 in the Cathedral by Franco Testore, an expert on weaves and fabrics, and by Giovanni Riggi, a representative of the maker of bio-equipment "Numana".The idea of scientifically dating the shroud had first been proposed in the 1960s, but permission had been refused because the procedure at the time would have required the destruction of too much fabric (almost 0.05 sq m ≅ 0.538 sq ft). P.), which involved about 30 scientists of various religious faiths, including non-Christians. Testore performed the weighting operations, while Riggi made the actual cut.Therefore, communication between PRL and LAMS is fast and effective.Organisation of Laboratory is an effect of cooperation of the Adam Mickiewicz University, Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology, Polish Academy of Sciences, and Centre for Archaeological Research, Foundation of the A.We know that it is older than Christendom, but whether by a couple of years or a couple of centuries, or even by more than a millenium, we can do no more than guess." [Rasmus Nyerup, (Danish antiquarian), 1802 (in Trigger, 19)].Nyerup's words illustrate poignantly the critical power and importance of dating; to order time.
"Everything which has come down to us from heathendom is wrapped in a thick fog; it belongs to a space of time we cannot measure.
Still in Egypt, experts raised doubts over a claim that the Great Pyramid at Giza contains two unknown voids or cavities.
Investigations using innovative techniques such as infrared thermography, and "cosmic ray" muon detectors are expected further explore that claim in 2017.
Poznan Radiocarbon Laboratory is the first such institution in the Central-Eastern Europe.
Performance of the Poznan Radiocarbon Laboratory (PRL) is possible due to a close collaboration with the AMS Laboratory (LAMS), housed at the same floor, and leaded by the same person.
The hieroglyphs reveal that workers and employees at Wadi al-Jarf participated in the construction of the pyramid.
Other findings included the remains of a 4,500-year-old funerary boat which was uncovered near the Abusir pyramids, a 3000-year-old mummy resting inside a perfectly preserved brightly colored wooden sarcophagus and a remarkable 3,400-year-old necropolis.
Writing of the European Upper Palaeolithic, Movius (1960) concluded that "time alone is the lens that can throw it into focus".
The radiocarbon method was developed by a team of scientists led by the late Professor Willard F.
Mickiewicz University in Poznan The Laboratory is kept by the Foundation of the A.
Mickiewicz University and is housed in the area of the Poznan Park of Science and Technology C laboratories are usually open to cooperate with wide community.
