Here are a couple of comments that we have received so far.
I had to leave before the end of your 2nd lecture day at the National Trust in Sydney
I found your lectures highly rewarding and I thought you did a fine job compressing such a lot of material into such a small space of time. Allow me to thank you for bringing you knowledge and experience to Sydney and generously sharing your thoughts. I hope you enjoyed your travels around the country.”

Thank you for the lectures in Brisbane.
As an engineer, I always find it interesting to consider building activities other than those that involve computer analysis and codes. Clearly there is much more for me to learn about historic brickwork and lime mortars . I am slowly converting from concrete where strong, rigid, quick setting, defined and impermeable are virtues to lime where they can be problematic.”
