dc.description.abstractIt has been studied the materials (rock and mortar) used in the construction of the Fabara's Mausoleum (Zaragoza) in order to stabilish the relation between their compositional-textural characteristics and their chronology, function and quality. The monument is from the roman age. This work deals with the study of the samples using petrografic, x-ray power difraction and chemical techniques.The bloks of stone are constituited by lithic arenites (calcli tithe). Besides it has been achieved a comparative study with rocks taken from several nearly quarries to provide information on the provenance of the bloks of stone used in the construction of the monument.The mortars have been used in construction of the claddings, the pavements and the foundation. These last ones are made using the shuttering technique. The samples are constituited of lime mortars with a heterogeneus aggregate constituited from quartz and limestones coming from aluvial sediments of the Matarrana River, except the first layer of the cladding which shows the aggregate constituited of limestone (sparite). The binder used in the manufacturing of the mortars differs in their hidraulic properties. These results are in relation with their function in the monumenten_US
