Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) is a technology that uses conventional digital photographs to derive detailed surface shape information (Figure 1). It is a digital, interactive version of the raking light photography commonly used in finds photography and (with the sun) on site to represent subtle changes in surface morphology. The University of Southampton is currently leading a project in collaboration with Oxford University funded by the AHRC further to develop and promote the RTI technology. We recently provided a demonstration of the available tools at the IfA conference on April 11th 2011.
