big pig peaches: How did the stones loose 100 tons in 500-600 year? Seems like a lot for erosion alone.
ProdigalSigh: big pig peaches: How did the stones loose 100 tons in 500-600 year? Seems like a lot for erosion alone.It's called the giant stone carving and the article says they were using boulders, I'm guessing they moved raw rock to the site and then carved them into place.Still fascinating, they must've had a Da Vinci level engineer that figured out to dig the wells, wet the ice, and design the sleds that could hold that much weight. Of course "make it happen or die painfully," is great for the thought processes.As much as I love Edison, Franklin, and Guttenberg, I wish my high school world history class had covered some Asians.
