Medieval Crane.

How did they lift the huge stones to build the cathedral hundreds of years ago, before the invention of the crane?

Jeffrey Martin took this VR photo of a replica of a medieval crane, built without power tools (or even screws or nails!), which is now used to replace statues on a cathedral in Prague.
