Abstract: The paper aims at characterising Gothic mortars of The House of Lords of Kunstát in Brno, Czech Republic. The House of Lords of Kunstát in Brno was built in Gothic style in the middle of the 13th century and rebuilt in Renaissance style in 1585-99. Light and electron microscopy, microanalysis, and X-ray diffraction were used to characterize the mortars. Provenances of lime and aggregate were identified. The age of the examined mortars was estimated based on micrite recrystallization in the binder and comparison of the recrystallization level with archaeologically dated samples exposed to identical conditions.
