Ancient technology is completely different from modern technology. There is a lot of evidence that our ancestors have the skills and abilities that we lack today. We may know some processes, but not all of them. Here are some of ancient technologies that were way ahead of their time


5000-year-old water system
A 5000-year-old water system has been unearthed by archaeologists in Iran during a rescue excavation project at Seimareh Dam reservoir. The water system consists of a small pool and a long earthenware pipeline. Each earthenware pipe measures about one metre in length and its likely that the structure was made and baked in this region. The Persians, as we know them, were one of the first civilizations to implement an advanced water supply system and one of the greatest aqueduct builders of the ancient world.

The Iron Pillar of India
In the Qutub complex of Delhi stands one of the most curious metal objects called the Iron Pillar of Delhi. Having an existence of around 1600 years, the pillar is almost 24 feet high and weighs more than 6 tons. It is famous for its non-rusted state, despite being made of 99% iron, and having been constructed in the 5th century CE. However, some theories say it is probably humidity factors or the quality of the materials used that caused a protective layer to appear on the pillar.

If they were so advanced in technology whey did they die out? Oh yeah, they embraced Islam....So much for their advanced technology..

I don't think a water system qualifies as tech. People back then weren't stupid.

Catastrophes, could be from huge volcanoes eruptions (terrestrial source alone) or falling bodies from outer space (meteorites, etc) both causing destruction of entire civilizations.

Technology depends on the materials available at the time. The airplane could not have been invented without the internal combustion engine, which in turn depended on the development of metallurgy and the distillation of petroleum. Real genius is figuring out how to use existing technology for new purposes.
