if anyone is interested in building a castle or any other megalithic structure the way they did in the ancient times without the aide of heavy machinery or thousands of slaves. go to: www.theforgottentechnology.com

there is a gentleman there that has discovered the way the egyptians built the pyramids. reminds me of edward leedskalnins coral castle in florida. thousands of tons of stone moved by a single man.

Side note: no levitation or extraterrestrial assistance necessary

I forgot to mention that this appears practical only if you are close to an area that has plenty of natural sone nearby. Mr. wallinton uses enormous blocks of concrete which can be very expensive. however if you quarry with his methods the cost can be very small. if anyone has evered dreamed of building a castle this looks like an excellent method.
