5. RTI as Evidence – As a Method for Discovery

In the case of Dame Mary May's tomb the PTMs provide evidence of the treatment of the body and face of the effigy. An image of an up-lit capture indicates the actual nature of the re-working that the effigy has been subjected to. Figures 10, 11 and 12 illustrate the most pertinent views from the first few RTIs that were carried out.
