Remember the Shroud of Turin, with the face of J.Christ? It's been carbon and 
chemically dated much later, in fact to the time of Leonardo de V, who 
invented the Camera Obscura. Some believe that the image on the shroud is 
actually Leonardo's face, a Camera Obscura image fixed there by him and 
making it the first photograph.
