After , it was theorised that there was an orchestrated criminal conspiracy surrounding the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. In , a French investigation concluded that Diana died as the result of a crash. Prominent in disputing the official version of events have been the British newspaper Daily Express   and Egyptian businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed , whose son, Dodi , was Diana's boyfriend at the time and also died with her in the crash. In , Diana's butler Paul Burrell published a note that he claimed had been written by Diana, in which there were allegations that her former husband was "planning 'an accident' in [Diana's] car, brake failure and serious head injury" so that he could marry again. This investigation looked into conspiracy claims that had been made by Fayed. Theorists have alleged that the driver of the Mercedes-Benz, acting head of Ritz security Henri Paul , was in the pay of a national security service, though different versions of the allegation name the country of the security service alternately as Britain, France or the United States. Evidence purported to support this arises mainly from money in his possession at the time of his death and his personal wealth.

Stonehenge , prehistoric stone circle monument, cemetery, and archaeological site located on Salisbury Plain , about 8 miles 13 km north of Salisbury , Wiltshire , England. Though there is no definite evidence as to the intended purpose of Stonehenge, it was presumably a religious site and an expression of the power and wealth of the chieftains, aristocrats, and priests who had it built—many of whom were buried in the numerous barrows close by. It was aligned on the Sun and possibly used for observing the Sun and Moon and working out the farming calendar. Or perhaps the site was dedicated to the world of the ancestors, separated from the world of the living, or was a healing centre.
The Turin Shroud is a fake. In the latest, but almost certainly not final instalment, they have used modern forensic techniques to show that apparent blood spatters on the shroud could only have been produced by someone moving to adopt different poses — rather than lying still, in the manner of a dead and yet to be resurrected Messiah. Forensic scientist Dr Matteo Borrini of Liverpool John Moores University and Luigi Garlaschelli of the University of Pavia used a living volunteer and real and synthetic blood to try to simulate possible ways that the apparent bloodstains could have got onto the shroud. This could be consistent with someone who had been crucified with their arms held in a Y shape. Unfortunately for shroud believers, however, the forearm blood stains would require the dead body to have been wrapped in the shroud with their arms in a different position — held almost vertically above their head, rather than at an angle of 45 degrees.
