no hover cars, I am just saying that if all you have to work with is stone, then you get pretty good working in stone, and probably learn a few tricks that later get forgotten.

However, there were things forgotten during the medieval dark age, that were rediscovered.  I seem to remember that Raphael learned about perspective from what he found exploring the catacombs.

How did the Greeks move 4 ton marble cubes on rafts, eight kilometers- one thousand years before the Great Pyramids in Egypt were built?
Humans may have surpassed the capacity to do the kind of work required. The Jews of the Exodus from Egypt(Moses) were likely mistreated workers, earning their daily bread while being ground into early death. In order to do a day's work on a farm, you have to be fit at least as far as the job demands. 

I wonder if any modern people could tolerate the labor intensive processes used in ancient times. 
It probably does make some events impossible to duplicate such as moving enormous rocks while people just drop like flies, no lawsuits. 


Still round the corner there may wait, a new road or a secret gate. (J. R. R. Tolkien)
