The project aims at providing technological support for a wider use of traditional technologies in restoration, conservation and reconstruction of historic buildings. This theme follows in the closing project in 2015 turned to the research of lime technologies. The specific aims of the project are as follows: 1) development and design of new lime mortars and renders, which by their composition, quality and workmanship correspond to the original, and verification of their functionality from material, applicability and cultural heritage conservation point of view, 2) design of a technological repair procedure for authentic elements of historic buildings. Specialised map of the permanently uncovered archaeological areas of Prague Castle produced on the basis of documentation of authentic elements of historic buildings with regards to the preserved traces and appearances related to materials and technologies will allow an improved efficiency of protection of materials of historic structures.
