Thanks! Just what I needed, as a fist year Civil Engineering student. Your article definatly goes on my Favourites link - it's almost exactly what we've been doing in our "Material Science" module.

You're not by any chance a lecturer are you?

No I am not.

I think you will find that 'Natural Cement' is not as widely recognised as I would like it to be. Take note, also, (when writing your essay!) of the important catalytic effect of the Napoleonic Wars in moving the discoveries forward, and the chasing of the commercial success of Natural Cements by the early OPC manufacturers. Both the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge stand on plinths of Natural Cement (from Rosendale) based concrete. So there's some extra marks for you!
