The colossal statues of ancient Egypt were created using lost ancient technology, according to a recent study. These massive statues, such as the Great Sphinx of Giza, were constructed using a technique that has puzzled experts for centuries. The study suggests that the ancient Egyptians used a combination of techniques, including advanced knowledge of quarrying and carving, as well as the use of advanced tools and machinery.
The researchers examined the statues and found evidence of precision cuts and smooth surfaces that could not have been achieved with the tools believed to have been available at that time. They also discovered tool marks that indicate the use of advanced cutting and carving techniques.
