You might disagree with me here but I was never very impressed by the ancient Egyptian pyramids, though wonderful, they fall short of miraculous. Given 50 years & tens of thousands of men for labour, I think anyone can cut & place one rock on top of another. What does seem a miracle of ingenuity & skill to me is their jewellery. I might never have noticed if I weren't a silversmith myself but if you stop to think about it, they had no torches, nor even naturally occuring flammable liquids (the first was naptha discovered in the 4th century). No knowledge or manner of measuring melting points, no solder or welding equipment... how did they manage such intricate & flawless pieces? How did they fix one piece of gold to the other without melting the join of the piece next to it?
