I am a graduate student working on a Master of Science in Geology,
and my thesis topic is the characterisation of historic lime
mortars. I am desperately seeking samples of historic lime mortars
for my research. For thin sectioning purposes, the sample should be
at least the size of the end of your thumb, from tip to the nearest
joint. I am also looking at the boundary characteristics between
substrate (stone or brick) and the mortar, so am also interested in
obtaining samples still attached to the substrate. If you would like
to contribute a sample, please contact me via email.
