Yep. The reason it's so fascinating is that we have a very different technological basis for our society. When we look at the pyramids, or the obelisks, our perspective doesn't take their thousands-of-years-old, mature technology into account. For them, that was just how it was done, based on countless generations of experience and improvement. It was no more wondrous or unusual for them than digging a hole with a backhoe is for us.
