On one occasion when I was in Jerusalem with the ESSJ expedition Alan tracked me down and asked me to conduct botanical experiments on his behalf with flowers in a tomb complex.
I also sourced for him the mighty botanical encyclopaedia of the Middle East. Alan was always a popular personality at the many international Shroud conferences we attended and addressed over the years in many different countries.
I always thought of Alan as a Boy Scout as he carried in his breast pocket every conceivable item for emergency use such as a flashlight, laser pointer, tweezers, cutters and numerous writing instruments. On one occasion in France the power went off in the middle of an important address and quick as a flash Alan was on the stage beside the speaker illuminating the notes with his boy scout torch. Some of Alan's work was subject to criticism from the cynics but he made an enormous contribution to Shroud studies so ably assisted by his wife Mary.
His work with photographic overlays which he invented contributed considerably to some of my own research dating ecuador portraits of Christ. Alan was of the generation of researchers now difficult to replace. My condolences are expressed to Mary and Alan's family as we give thanks for a full life the influence of which has affected a large number of people.
Some have even gone so far as to suggest that the entire Book of Mormon narrative occurred within a very limited geographical location in Central America and therefore would be virtually undetectable by means of modern research. Unfortunately for these scholars, this theory and the different variations of it that exist directly contradicts nearly a century and a half of past statements by high-ranking Church leaders, past prophets, the Book of Mormon text, the Doctrine and Covenants which specifically identifies North American Natives as Lamanites and even Joseph Smith himself.
If one is to accept any variation of this ""limited geography theory,"" one must disregard the LDS church's current and past declarations on the matter and basically stand in direct opposition to current and past church teachings. The reason that the limited geography theory is appealing to many apologists is because the closest archaeologists have come to finding anything remotely similar to the historical claims made in the Book of Mormon are found in the Olmec and Mayan ruins of Central America.
During the early s, reports circulated in LDS culture that the Book of Mormon was being used by the Smithsonian to guide primary archaeological research. This rumor was brought to the attention of Smithsonian directors who, insent a form letter to inquiring parties stating that the Smithsonian did not use the Book of Mormon to guide any research, and included a list of specific reasons Smithsonian archaeologists considered the Book of Mormon historically unlikely.
