I do enjoy a trick question and smart answer
They had many many names for all kinds of different stone types, usage, method of moving, methods to quarry them, a whole technical 'jargon' built
up over centuries, oddly no name for slag concrete or any mention of it in their oral and later written histories.
Now thats cute, set it up and slay it down
I guess you have a name for the slag stone from the Celts or aborigines of Australia too, I guess not! Despite this they made slag stones, heres a
cute slag stone. (Wish I could find that Celtic one in a churchyard again.). Despite the lack of a name amongst the masons the analytical paper above
describes the composition and structure of slag, go figure.

Maybe we should be asking the metal refiners/workers, I guess they had a name for the great piles of crap that dotted the landscape and formed hills
no less. Are you saying the miners didn't have a name for slag stone or just the mason's. From what I gather, the Incas built on top of the stones
that were already there, much like the spanish did. They all claim the credit of course
..And thats a great question
The only way to verify this is to duplicate it......
Well slag stone forming was duplicated and used commercially up until the beginning of the 20th C. Here's a nice example from the west of england. If
you look at the picture, you can see how much better lasting the slag stone is than the plaster and bricks for that matter. Or was that a trick q.
