Wasn't sure where to put this but since an ancient civilization builds these, I figured this is a good a spot as any.
This makes me wonder how many ancient and old techniques were lost forever when war or disease killed those that had the knowledge to show the next
generation how to do it, but now they couldn't.

thanks for posting.
That vid comes from a documentary from about 12-15 years ago. In the original production they also show local stone masons working blocks in the old
way, like at saksaywaman, with nothing more than pounders, they even haul the blocks up from a river bottom, with the same grass ropes, to prove to
disbelievers that their ancestor did infact build the great monuments of the andes.
