Using the National Science Foundation-University of Arizona’s Accelerator Mass Spectrometer, the scientists determined a precision date of 1434 A.D. plus or minus 11 years.

Well - that's it, really.

Proposing that the content of anastase and carbon in the ink should contradict the age of the paper is nothing but biased speculations from panik-stroken fundamentalists, who have exposed themselves as "convinced sceptics" to the map - well before the carbon-dating. And now hey cant admit their bad luck, of course... Cry

Besides - charcoal and (natural) anastase was very well known by the famous painters of the middle-ages. Just ask any well-educated art-historian...  Wink
