This chapter is focused on the potential pitfalls that the non-specialist may face when using Raman spectroscopy as an analytical tool in the fields of art and archaeology. In the last few decades, the development of easy-to-use instruments, most of them more affordable and compact, caused an impressive increase in the number of applications and Raman spectroscopy users. The enthusiasm caused by the advantages of the technique over other tools has to be counterbalanced by the knowledge of the factors affecting its performance, the understanding of its limitations, and the perception of how the instrument characteristics, sample interrogation and spectral data interpretation interfere in the conclusions driven from Raman spectroscopic analysis.
