It is not a mystery that thousands of years ago, ancient cultures around the globe had the ability to somehow move supermassive blocks of stone with extreme facility.
Despite lacking ‘modern tools’ to do so, it is a well-known historic fact that cultures had the ability to move rocks of up to 1,000 tons, and transport them from their quarries to their final resting places, in temples, pyramids, and other monuments.
And while we still can’t figure out the how, we continue searching our planet discovering incredible ancient sites that are the ultimate proof that we still don’t know everything about our ancestors.
In this article, I’ve gathered a number of images from different archaeological sites across the globe that show the sheer number of megaliths quarried and moved by mankind thousands of years ago.
In addition to the fact that they quarried and transported stones up to one thousand tons, the ancients were also very gifted designers and engineers.
Some stones, like those found at the Khafre Valley Temple in Egypt, feature incredibly precise cuts and stones put together in such a way that every stone fits perfectly to the next one.
The most amazing thing perhaps is the fact that all of this was achieved without the use of mortar.
And curiously, if we compare the images of temples in Egypt to images of monuments in Bolivia or Peru; like Puma Punku, Sacsayhuaman, or even Ollantaytambo, we will notice an incredible similarity between the stones in South America and those in Africa.
It is almost as if these cultures used the same technique, the same technology, and the same principles thousands of years ago.
The only question that remains is, what were these techniques? What was the technology they used?
Where is it now? And why have we not found any evidence of it despite tedious archaeological work?
So, ask yourself after seeing these images; Did the ancients achieve all of this using sticks and stones?
Or, is there a slight possibility that we still have not figured out everything about ancient civilizations that lived on Earth thousands of years ago, and that somewhere out there the final piece of the puzzle remains to be found?
