The Incas were skilled engineers who were able to construct the complete fortress of Machu Picchu without the use of cement. Instead, they adopted a method known as ashlar, which involves carefully cutting stones such that they lay on top of one another with no gap between them. You couldn't even get a sheet of paper through the stones!
