Thanks again Merrell

Perhaps you did not view the vid in the OP?
In it Davidovits ,specifically and honestly admits, he does not know about Sacsayhuaman specifically because no samples were taken or therefore of course analysed.

However Tiwanaku / Puma Punku were analysed.

Simply because modern science has only recently discovered recipe and methods for artificial geopolymer stone does not in my mind exclude the possibility that Ancient cultures found the natural mixture to achieve it. It also goes a long way to explaining the otherwise unexplainable such as the huge megalithic sandstone foundations at Puma Punku.

Perhaps I have been to dogmatic or much of an advocate!?.
Sometimes that helps encourage interest, individual private research and feedback.

Thanks for yours
Cheers
