[quote author=“George Benedik”]I totally ignored the fact that not ALL the people were working on ONE block.
Right ... it would have have to have been done in parallel. If my calculations aren’t totally out of whack, they could have been working on ~200 blocks at the same time, in teams of ~10.
(This is largely guesswork on my part. I imagine the archaeologists have a better sense of the sizes of the teams, etc.)
I’m sure the carting and placing also worked in parallel.
It certainly would have been an impressive feat to watch.

Glad to help straighten things out a little. Can’t make any non-vacation promises however—that’d drive me craaaaaaaaazy ...!
