No I said that. To make it clear he was reporting something he had heard. I could of told you that if you asked as I read the original almost 40 years ago.

Okay any way.

Yep it was reported by him and labelled a fable by him*. However, we know that the Inca did drag stuff around (or how do you think they did it?) as did other cultures and they did so on much hillier terrain than say the Sumerians or Egyptians. We have images of people dragging stuff around in those cultures too and even people doing so in the 20th century elsewhere. To me it sounds like a true story - perhaps with embellishment. I once helped to pull a 70 ton tank out of a frozen over ditch and all went well until we got it to a piece of level ground - and it took off - and went another 150 ft on its 'own' - heavy weights can get away from people.

People who dragged big rocks around on uneven terrain probable had a oopsie once or twice.

*Our writer was reporting the Inca Oral history which he does to a great deal in the first part of two part book.
