Ancient Cutting technologies

I am also intrigued by the stone cutting technology that has been used in Egypt thousands of years ago. As you can see in the image above it looks like some stones have been leveled out after the construction had been finished. The level of precision suggests that it has been done in one go - a kind of giant saw or it rather looks to me that stones have been sliced like a butter. I do not know, but if you look at both pictures it seems rather odd to assume that it has been done with simple tools we are told were used in Egypt 4000 years ago.
