It's amazing to think of the engineering feats accomplished before the 1800's. I don't think ancient man was a dumb as we believe. I think we seriously under estimate our ancestors. The Ancient Engineers is an excellent book written by an excellent author. Mr. De Camp has also written some very serious science fiction as well. If you are interested in history and just how amazing some of the earliest accomplishments are give this book a read.
