"A further problem was that the shroud was in a serious fire in 1532 and smoke introduces a lot of contaminants.

The Shroud is a unique object, and actually is the only existing intact burial Shroud from Israel/Palestine from that period of time.
In 2013, a test on fibers from the Shroud of Turin, conducted by scientists at the University of Padua, Italy, dated the Shroud to between 300 BC and 400 AD, which would put it in the era of Christ (see “ In 1976, using 3-D projection techniques, researchers first noticed the presence of small bulges on the ocular orbit bones of the Man of the Shroud which wouldn’t match any possible morphological characteristics.
