Historic Literature Review of Traditional Lime Mortars
Technical Paper 30 is a review of the historic literature relating to lime mortars. It is based on the reading of historic texts from 160BC - 1955 that describe the preparation of lime mortars in varying detail.
This paper and the others in our series are a result of an identified need to better understand the performance, qualities, materials, preparation techniques, and applications of traditional mortars. It is hoped and intended that these insights will critically engage with and help inform current practice.
