Dear Antelope

Many thanks for the quick reply, and for your offer to check for information on the rice soup used in lime mortar. The web link that I found for this story is


Perhaps this may help you to find out more details?

Once again, thank you for your assistance.

Kind regards

Dear Dr. Ian,

Many thanks for your kind email.

In my mind there is the same impression that our frontiers ever put glutinous rice SOUP into the lime and used it as the sticky method for the bricks. But for evidence in English we have to search, perhaps I have to check with the webmaster of our Post, as your question is very technical and interesting.

Further information will be given after search.

Kind regards,


For The Greatwall Post
