In 1978 the shroud was more extensively sampled by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), a scientific group that, alas, was composed primarily of religious believers.
McCrone was eventually "drummed out" of STURP. Two other STURP scientists then claimed they had "identified the presence of blood" on the cloth, but their efforts suffered when it was shown that similar results could be obtained from tempera paint!(8)
