Raman spectroscopy has grown to become one of the most important techniques in the field of cultural heritage studies. Benchtop Raman spectrometers, together with their mobile counterparts, are used extensively to characterize the materials and identify possible degradation products on works of art. This chapter describes the fundamentals, techniques and applications of Raman spectroscopy in archaeometry. Moreover, the state-of-the-art instrumentation is discussed together with the traditional and also latest spectroscopic approaches.
