Technical Paper 32 - A Data Driven Approach to Understanding Historic Mortars in Scotland
On 1 October 2020, Technical Paper 32 – A Data Driven Approach to Understanding Historic Mortars in Scotland – was issued, jointly produced by the Scottish Lime Centre Trust (SLC), which is an IHBC Recognised CPD Provider, and Historic Environment Scotland (HES).
This publication looks at trends that can be discerned from the historic lime mortars database held by the Scottish Lime Centre Trust. It includes aggregate and binder composition, mix practice and provenance of materials. It also considers changes in practice and regional variations.
