What is the date of this rug with 2 standard deviations? That answer will provide a 95% confidence limit. As I read most of the reports on the dating conference, only 1 standard deviation was given, and the confidence limits were about as good as flipping a coin. Being the skeptic that I am, I need a lot more information for me to believe that this fragment is 350 years old. Certainly the photo in the book is of no help. Anyone out there have more info to convince us of the age?
