INTRODUCTION:
This article should be viewed as part of a broader investigation which aims to analyse and study the restoration work carried out on rammed earth architecture in Spain from 1980 until the present, taking into account both the intervention criteria proposed and the construction techniques used in the interventions. The ministerial structure in charge of the interventions on Spanish heritage was a basic source of information from which numerous case studies could be selected for this research on the restoration of rammed earth architecture in Spain.




It should be noted that since this study focuses on the analysis of interventions with public funding, particularly from the state, the buildings intervened on are monuments, and rammed earth constructions of vernacular architecture are excluded from the analysis. The analysis of the work presented here focuses basically on the interventions in the construction techniques proposed for the actions.




The main aim of this article is a global study which systematically and homogeneously covers the study and analysis of intervention techniques used on monumental rammed earth architecture under centralised supervision from the state through the various ministerial structures.




The main goal of this study is to analyze the similarities and contrasts in interventions which have a same building technique.

The main aim of this article is a global study which systematically and homogeneously covers the study and analysis of intervention techniques used on monumental rammed earth architecture under centralised supervision from the state through the various ministerial structures. The main goal of this study is to analyze the similarities and contrasts in interventions which have a same building technique.  As regards state




actions relating to interventions on the architectural heritage, a series of case studies were selected from the state archives on heritage interventions. We therefore worked with material from the archives of the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute, IPCE (Ministry of Culture) and the archives of the Ministry of Development. The selection from these archives of interventions carried out on buildings constructed using the rammed earth technique has provided a series of case studies that are fairly homogeneously distributed throughout Spain if we take into account the parts of the country in which rammed earth architecture is more commonز The task of compiling the information from the archives was carried




out based on a database list from the General Archives of the IPCE. The list for intervention work carried out in the period 1980–2011, 2,779 files in total, was obtained from this database. A case-by-case search was then carried out in order to select only the buildings intervened which had originally been built using the rammed earth construction technique. This resulted in a shorter list made up of 102 intervention files relating to 78 buildings, which were included in the database.
