Hi Dennis..

OK Can we start with plaster and whitewash
Plaster is used to cover a rough surface or defect
Whitewash is used to paint something white.

Petrie, who I think we all agree was a reliable observer.
Says that the plaster "is over and under red marks".
The Dowell photos seem to verify this.
Maybe we have to forgive Petrie for not mentioning plaster in the fifth chamber, He may simply not have seen it . Oil Lamp. Old man getting tired etc..
The Dowell photos confirm that there is plaster in the fifth chamber today.

I have difficulty in imagining that the builders would have applied plaster or whitewash prior to construction..
Agreed??

I have also read that plaster was used to effect repairs.
I understand that this means cracks in beams.
Plaster does not repair a beam, it merely covers the defect.
I assume the builders knew this.
Plaster is a cosmetic, not a structural repair.
Why did the builders make cosmetic repairs to a chamber that was to be sealed for eternity??
And if it was a cosmetic repair why did they just smear and dollop the plaster on??

The defects obviously appeared after construction.
How did the repair team gain access to the chambers to identify and repair the defects.??

I understood that the Vyse team were the first in there since the day it was sealed during construction. care of Gunpowder..

To avoid going around in circles can we just address the plaster and whitewash issue for now.
Stick to the empirical evidence and try to create a timeline..
for building and repairs/plastering.
Don't even think about paint yet.

Cheers Guys..
