Monochrome Monday: Ancient Arches

Ancient Engineering

Ancient Engineering

I would love to have been present when the ancients built this double arched entrance way into what was an building. This marvel was constructed without computers, without power tools. For me, that is a marvel in its own right. Then to meticulously place the massive stones just adds to this wonder of ancient engineering. More than a thousand years after it was built, I still felt safe standing beneath the arches.
