    Prior to modern restorations there surely were lime on the walls, but personally I don’t know whether it was in the form of plaster or whitewash and whether the one or the other was applied in the Middle Ages. I should think it was a relatively thick whitewash. There has been a great debate about this theme as concerns Utstein, prior to the recent whitewashing/plastering of the walls.

    I would be grateful, if you could tell me if the external and internal faces of the stonework at Utstein Kloster, were originally finished with whitewash
