Looking back through time the achievements of engineers throughout history still baffles today's experts. How did the ancient Egyptians construct the pyramids with the limited tools they had available to them at the time. The Romans constructed the foundations for their empire; roads, aquaducts, viaducts, public bathing pools, under floor heating and the coliseum, many of which are still around today. Then of course there was the industrial revolution which saw the movement from hand production methods to machines, greatly improving efficiency.
