Application of normal and microscopic RTI to artifacts derived from the Hellenistic-classical Derveni cemetery in Macedonia, Greece, demonstrates RTI’s contribution towards prevention, investigation, documentation and communication. Microscopic RTI meets the conservation needs for limited human-object interaction, high quality and affordable visual analysis, advanced documentation and level of detail. Consequently, it does not only signal interesting developments of the technique, but also leads to its broader application in the cultural heritage sector and particularly in conservation practice.
