Abstract

This project highlights the importance of an integrated planning of field and laboratory procedures for the success of the radiocarbon dating of mortar samples.

In this research bulk mortar analysis was complemented with lime lump analysis. The two materials were dated at different laboratories.

Results are discussed considering the historic and archaeological information available on the building and on the structure where the sample was collected.
