Right. But you are thinking like a person from a 21st century industrial civilization. The civilization that built these was not industrial. They were very much a hand tool level civilization. Communication was mostly verbal, most people would have been illiterate. Knowledge and processes would have been done by demonstration, at the local level. And the sophistication of communication depends upon vocabulary.

Take your sentence: "I'm thinking 'casting' in terms of repetitive manufacturing as opposed to in-situ moulding, as in construction." Do you think you could even translate the words of that sentence into their language? I doubt it. They lacked the vocabulary. And so they lacked the thought processes that depend upon vocabulary.
