    The development of natural cement technology was the culmination of thousands of years of research and development. Its rise to become the primary hydraulic binder used in buildings and structures in the United States occurred in the 19th century. Today, it is again finding a place in the restoration industry. Ultimately, it is the understanding of both the history of this technology and its redefinition in contemporary technical terms that will guide appropriate use of this traditional 19th century material in 21st century restoration work. The First and Second American Natural Cement Conferences brought together experts from a wide variety of disciplines in order to re-establish and augment the base of knowledge for this technology and our connection to it.
