I also noticed on the sidebar of that video is a link to the giant column at Germany's Felsenmeer.
There is some very interesting machine work represented there, some of it strikes me as being done by more than one technology (or culture) having its way with those blocks of stone, including direct linear saw cuts as well as wedge cuts. Also note the sharp inside corner at 8:03.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
