"Secrets of Lost Empires" - hardcover book with dust jacket, In new condition, by M. Barnes, R. Brightwell, A von Hagen, M. Lehner, & C. Page. Published by BBC Books, 1996.

In as-new condition, 224 pages, includes index, with colour photos and diagrams throughout.


Throughout the world lie the ruins of some of the greatest civilisations the world has ever seen, but it remains a mystery how such structures were accomplished without the aid of modern technology. In this book, engineers and architects work together to re-create past glories using the tools of the time.


Pyramids of Egypt.

Roman amphitheatres.

Inca earthquake-resistant stonework and grass suspension bridges over canyons.

The book, beautifully illustrated with photos taken as the re-creating experiments progressed, dramatically reveals the skill and ingenuity of ancient minds and hands, as well as introducing us to many wonders of vanished civilisations.
