Concrete contains portland cement and motar usually contains a mixture of portland cement and lime. In the "old days" mortar was just lime and sand, but had slow drying times. Today it is usually a mixture. Where high strength, erosion resistance, etc are required, mortar can be made from just portland cement and sand.
