At least come up with one yourself


Ok here goes. The Romans invented concrete 2000 years ago. When the Romans collapsed, the knowledge of how to make concrete was left unknown to the world for about 1700 years until it was independently reinvented again during the industrial revolution

I didn't think they invented it but because they basically conquered everyone else who used it it meant when Rome "fell" no one else could remember how to make it?

There’s some Mayan temple with a base that was 300 meters high. Or maybe that was the Tower of Babel. I only know this because I built it in Minecraft years ago and the base was 100 blocks tall
