When I came across the arch I knew it was a very old archway. The conglomeration of stones, the crude but effective mortaring had obviously worked for it was still standing so many centuries since.
It was a structure to be marvelled at and I thought about the men who way back when had dragged the stone from various quarries and shaped the stones to create what I was seeing in front of me.
Who were these men I wondered?
Was the archway the result of their best work, making do with what resources they could find?
There had to have been a team of men because several of the stones I couldn’t imagine one man being able to lift and place as accurately as they had done.
