Errors in measuring the percentage dry weight change of stone tablets

Portland Stone and Monks Park limestone tablets were used to assess weathering loss over a two-year study. Proedures involved in preparing tablets for exposure, attaching them to the exposure frame and reweighing might have influenced weight changes measured. Although all the procedures seem to produce a statistically insignificant amount of weight loss, the two stone types do respond differently to the procedures. This suggests that stone properties may be important in determining the accuracy with which tablets can be used
