Lime has been used until relatively recently (mid-twentieth century), as a construction material and to paint and disinfect walls. The interior of the kiln was filled with wood, and limestone was burned until it turned into calcium oxide, known as quicklime. He calcine he watched this process day and night to keep the fire going.
