Forgotten technology - Moving HUGE Stones

How was Stonehenge or the Pyramids or many other ancient so called impossible structures built? Here are a few people who have discovered a way to do so in modern times.

Ed Leedskalnin built the Coral Castle when his fiance jilted him at the altar in Latvia around 1912. He moved to Florida and according to legend built Coral Castle as a monument to his love in hopes his love will come over to see his castle and marry him and stay with him there.

Here's a documentary on Ed's Coral Castle

Here's another documentary on Ed

Ed was secretive and unfortunately his methods apparently died with him. I'm not sure about all this theories of anti-gravity and alternate theories of magnetism though.

However today, here's Wally Wallington, who has discovered a way (may not be THE way) to do it with wood and ropes. No heavy machinery, no levitation devices, just leverage. He is not secretive and quite ingenius in the simplicity of his techniques.

Ok fine, now that there is a plausible way for one or a few people to move around rocks, even to put a monolith upright. But how do you put a large block on the top of the Great Pyramid?

Jean-Pierre Houdin perhaps has an answer. The ramps used were inside the pyramid.

Plausible? Definitely. In reality is it really how these structures were built? Who knows?
