Merrell

It just goes to show that even I , who is pedantic about reading an entire thread in flat view (always unless acknowledged). I missed what you "quoted". Sorry!

I realise you will wriggle and squirm , and argue, at almost anything outside of orthodoxy.

However, I will back W M F Petrie and Col H Vyse over Reisner - any day ,any time. He (Reisner) made some minor boo-boos !
With your much greater knowledge of Egyptology than mine, you would be WELL aware that not all, are capable of addressing all of the associated /related fields and technical areas of interest.

The fact is the bond noted by both gentleman IS extraordinary. They AE possessed that technology. FACT!

Now you probably did not watch the later video (Not good quality nor entirely endorsed - 39 min with specific time markers identified in my reply to Hanslune)
Do so please, at least, infact ONLY, scroll to exactly 25min mark (Sacsayhuaman) and then do some intense research and advise how the crystalline structure shown at the joints, could change as depicted , if it was natural stone.
Any suggestion at all !!!!!!????? Welcome.

Thanks I will read your link later.

Cheers

PS Tit bit of exciting news for all!

I received a PM from Philip Femano a.k.a "Origyptian"
I feel many will be delighted that he is still alive and arguing (in friendly manner)
I am yet to reply Phil, I have to get over the shock and choose my words carefully.
