    Abstract

    Historic lime mortars are complex materials that are often seen to contain lime lumps. The origin of lime lumps is debated and at present no single cause of formation has been agreed upon. An experiment to analyse the production of lime lumps within the early life cycle of a mortar was formulated to clarify this problem. This article presents the background and the early results of the burning and slaking of four selected samples.
