For example, you would be hard pushed today to buy a watch that was totally made by hand - yet 100 years ago there was no other way. What I am trying to say is the craftsmanship in itself has disappeared through the generations.
The question is the tools that they employed to gain these results. Diamond edged tools have been used for precision engineering in modern times, but what I don't know is whether the ancient Egyptions had access to diamonds. If they did (they seemed to have access to most precious stones), then is it possible that they employed similar devices back then?
All the tools they used must have been precision made for each particular purpose, and I wonder if there is any soil analysis data for the sites in question that may indicate a higher diamond dust content?
