The Bible describes two pieces of cloth, but they are not both “burial shrouds” as you see this. Conventional burial practices at the time would indicate that the second piece of cloth was a much smaller one that was wrapped only around the head of the deceased.

Yeah, and that one has also been preserved,at Oviedo in Spain. It’s facial image lines up perfectly with the one on the Shroud.

THe Shroud IS one of the two graveclothes mentioned in John.

The other cloth is believed to be the “Sudarium of Oviedo, or Shroud of Oviedo, is a bloodstained cloth...”

Has similar markings as the shroud and same rare blood type (AB). It is also mentioned in a historical document from 570 AD - which is can be used to support that the shroud was around much earlier than the middle ages.
