The Ancient Engineers

(1974)
A non fiction book by

 

"Mr. de Camp has the trick of being able to show technology engaging in feats as full of derring-do as those of Hannibal's army. History as it should be told."
Isaac Asimov


Invention & technology advanced with painful slowness through the 17th century, not because men were stupid, but because the imagination and daring that every innovator must have were limited to a tiny group. It is about these brave men--whose genius enabled the Egyptians to build their pyramids, the Phoenicians to erect magnificent public buildings that this carefully researched account has been written.
