What stones do we use to build? Which stones weather best? Some of these questions can be answered at this website, which examines a test wall of building materials constructed in 1948. A great feature allows students to look at stones from different states or countries (many of the stone samples were collected in 1880) and examine the differences between the materials stored inside and those built into the wall and exposed to the elements.
