Author Biography
Wilson, Ian (Author)
Born in London in 1941, Ian Wilson attended Emanuel School in London and Magdalen College in Oxford. After his schooling, Wilson pursued a career in business management. In 1973, he was invited to study the Shroud of Turin, a topic of interest very close to his heart. His work resulted in the best-seller The Turin Shroud, which was later translated into 10 languages. Wilson also co-scripted a critically-acclaimed television documentary on the subject, entitled The Silent Witness. This was followed by the best-selling book Jesus: The Evidence.

Wilson is known for the investigative approach he takes in examining the evidence for life after death, stigmata, the biblical Exodus, the discovery of America, and the historical Shakespeare. Such was his approach in writing The Blood and the Shroud, which is the first detailed re-appraisal of the Shroud of Turin following the famous carbon dating.

Wilson is married and has two sons.
