Abstract: The present work deals with the microstructure, hydration and properties, mainly physico-mechanical and durability, of mortars for the repair and strengthening of prehistoric masonry. Mixtures composed of earth, Portland cement in limited quantities and calcareous sand are examined. The aim of the research is the development of cement-stabilized earth mortars with good durability properties and able to ensure effective repair and strengthening, which is required in earthquake-prone areas such as Greece.
