> I can't even imagine, pulling stones around
When I started I figured they used lots of methods to move stone around and often they just muscled them into position. But the more I look the more I think they never used brute strenght to move them. The closest they came was probably on the loading platform but evenb here the stones were gently moved down a short slope into position in almost every case. Once in a while there would be a miscalculation and they might need to lift a stone a few inches.
There was simply never any need to drag stones around.
In fact I seriously doubt anyt of the ancient megalithic projects required men to strap on stones and march hither and yon. If this had been a requirement then they simply would have used wood to build. The closest they came to stone dragging might have been Stonehenge but I suspect all these stones coasted most of the way up the hills on sleds.
The fascination of modern people with superstitious bumpkins dragging stones is simple nonsense.
