The Top 10 Most Impressive Civil Engineering Projects of All Time

Visual Capitalist gives us an easy-read list that's interesting, too. The other thing about it: Barring a minor quibble or two (i.e. personally would swap the positions of Brooklyn Bridge and Hoover Dam) I think they got the choices pretty much straight and correct. Particularly the top three (and if you haven't seen #3 you should, the longer you get to stare at it the more impressive it is). 

Anyway, teaser over, go enjoy it yourself by clicking here.

UPDATE: Reader GA is correct when writing in to comment, "...when it comes to moving tonnes of rock from A to B, slavery beats capitalism all day"
