SunTemple of U. S. Pueblo people has complex geometric shapes.
“AncientSouthwestern Pueblo people, who had no written language or writtennumber system, were able to do just that - and used these skills tobuild sophisticated architectural complexes.
“Unlikethe ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Maya, the ancestral Pueblo peoplehad no written language or number system to aid them when they builtthe site. Incredibly, their measurements were still near-perfect,with a relative error of less than one percent.
"Thegenius of the site's architects cannot be underestimated. If youasked someone today to try to reconstruct this site and achieve thesame precision that they had using just a stick and a piece of cord,it's highly unlikely they'd be able to do it, especially if theycouldn't write anything down as they were working."
During“research, Towers discovered that the site was laid out using acommon unit of measurement just over 30 centimeters in length - equalto about one modern-day foot.
