In building today’s modern structures we all take for granted the tools and equipment we have available. Machines that can move tons of earth in one stroke, cranes that can lift incredible weight sky-high and hand-held power tools that cut and shape, bind and paint.
But stop and think of the spectacular architectural buildings of renaissance Europe, or the even earlier structures of ancient Egypt or China. Now stop and think that all of these cathedrals, towers, bridges, castles and pyramids, were constructed with human or animal power only. no mechanical power or electricity. That’s pretty amazing to imagine.
Think of designing and building the Taj Mahal.
