At the vast Karnak temple complex in Luxor, Egypt is evidence of machine technology. For centuries archaeologists and scholars have considered Karnak to be one of the most dramatic examples of the remarkable technological ability of early man. The hieroglyphics carved into the pillars and obelisks is clearly of an unmatched perfection. Experts believe the most impressive evidence of advanced machining can be found on Karnak's tall four-sided tapering monuments called obelisks. The obelisk is carved with the same inscription on all four sides, and each side is exactly the same – a mirror image. There are slots .140 inches wide and .50 inches deep that could only have been made using a rotating tool. The human hand is not capable of such precision carving. The tool marks and rotating impressions are still evident on the red granite surface. The tool kit that we see in museums, which the ancient Egyptians were supposed to have used, could not have been used to produce the results seen at Karnak.
