The celebrated ruins of Nan Madol are an engineering feat. Evidence suggests that construction began in the 7th century and continued until the 16th century. Natives used bamboo and mangrove rafts to transport large basalt logs to the site. These logs were arranged to form walls that are as high at 25 feet!
