One theory is that the person referred to as Thomas had been given the task of bringing the relics to the island.An analysis of the box has shown that the tuff box has a high waterproof quality and is likely to have originated from Cappadocia, a region of modern-day Turkey.Archaeological and written records suggest that these reliquaries were first developed and used at Constantinople by the city's ruling elite at around the time that the relics of John the Baptist are said to have arrived there.Dr Kazan said ' My research suggests that during the fifth or early sixth century, the monastery of Sveti Ivan may well have received a significant portion of St John the Baptist's relics, as well as a prestige reliquary in the shape of a sarcophagus, from a member of Constantinople's elite.Professor Higham said: ' We were surprised when the radiocarbon dating produced this very early age.We had suspected that the bones may have been more recent than this, perhaps from the third or fourth centuries.The Bulgarian researchers believe that the bones probably came to Bulgaria via Antioch, an ancient Turkish city, where the right hand of St John was kept until the tenth century.
Oxford professors Thomas Higham and Christopher Ramsey attempted to radiocarbon date four human bones, but only one of them contained a sufficient amount of collagen to be dated successfully.
However, the result from the metacarpal hand bone is clearly consistent with someone who lived in the early first century AD.
Whether that person is John the Baptist is a question that we cannot yet definitely answer and probably never will.' Former Oxford student Dr Hannes Schroeder and Professor Eske Willerslev, both from the University of Copenhagen, also reconstructed the complete mitochondrial DNA genome sequence from three of the human bones to establish that the bones were all from the same individual.
