Joan of Arc's 'remains' not what they seem





Researchers examining what were thought to be Joan of Arc's remains are fast coming to the conclusion that they are no such thing, a forensic scientist leading the investigation said.

"The chances that we are dealing with the remains of the French heroine are diminishing," Philippe Charlier said after completing six months of research.

"The results do not allow us to give an answer with certainty. But my historical prejudices on relics that turn out to be false lead me to think that we are headed towards a hypothesis of a false relic."
