In fact, ten years ago, to celebrate our 30th anniversary, I created a special tribute video that was shown at the 2008 Columbus, Ohio Shroud Conference.

Even sadder, since I produced that video, several more team members have passed, so their names are not included in the memorial at the end of the tribute.Those not included are Vernon Miller, Don Devan and Bill Mottern.I thought a good way to start this 40th anniversary year would be to re-release the video and share it with our current viewers.On one occasion when I was in Jerusalem with the ESSJ expedition Alan tracked me down and asked me to conduct botanical experiments on his behalf with flowers in a tomb complex.I also sourced for him the mighty botanical encyclopaedia of the Middle East.Here is the link to A Tribute to the STURP Team - 1978-2008, which runs just under 15 minutes.
