Nowadays, in Castilla y León a great amount of material heritage both in popular and monumental architecture is preserved, with many of the walls built using earth of some sort. Within such a diverse collection of heritage, the basic structures such as rammed earth, adobe, or lattice work, are extensively documented, unlike mixed solutions.
The study is focused on the identification, documentation and characterization of mixed rammed earth walls in monumental architecture of Castilla y León, Spain. The methodology aims to join traditional techniques and new digital techniques, which allow a more dynamic and intuitive understanding.
The main aim is to complete the existing study by documenting mixed walls, in order to describe them and to create working methods suited for preserving, restoring and making them known.
