These are scientific "anomalies" only if you apply that term to simple problems that scientists have a too pitifully limited imagination to find the simple solutions. In many of these cases, such as pyramid building methods, /engineers/ have tried to re-create what ancients might have done--and succeeded in every case. The crystal skulls are trivial, for instance: tool marks can be removed by the simple expedient of sitting them in a running stream for a few years. Hardly high tech. Stones even as large as those on Easter Island have been moved using nothing more than mechanical devices made from logs and muscle power. There may well be one or two technologies lost, but if any of them have any practical use today, they'll be found again in no time. If not, then what do they matter?
