Abstract


This paper describes the analysis of Roman mortars in two rooms of a villa at El Ruedo, Almedinilla, Cordoba. The techniques or procedures used included grain size distribution analysis and X ray diffraction. The decorative materials used in the various environments in the villa were found to differ in composition and therefore to have been taken from different sites (different quarries).

Keywords
