Both Shroudie and I have read almost everything on the Shroud (he more than I)... including historian Ford's article on the blood research. You are right. It is thorough... and pretty definitive. It is, however, a scientific paper and while it does document the actual science, the better material is the actual source papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Ford's report is a good recap for the layman.
What we cannot understand is why some people would prefer to read and believe the non-scientific opinions of a second rate magician to scientists' research in their own fields of specialty.
