Description The paper is an overview study oriented on technological classification of mortars and plasters used in various historical epochs in buildings. It summarizes their physical, textural and material parameters that have to be taken into account in remediation. The necessity of such an approach is demonstrated on a case, when the original raw material (limestone) used for lime burning in certain historical era cannot be identified even in case the source area is known. This confirms the presumption that the composition of the current limestone beds differs from the limestone that had been exploited in at the same places in the past.
