Now, if this isn't the coolest thing you've seen today then you need to close the refrigerator. It's an animation of how bridges were built in Central Europe in the middle-ages.
@publicvoit Charles Bridge (Karlův most), across the Vltava (Moldau) river in Prague, Czech Republic, construction animation, showing medieval engineering techniques.
This video is the longer-form (3m), higher-quality version of a gif circulating earlier (see parent).

@dredmorbiusThanks for this! I was mostly wondering how they drained the part of the river they were building in, but some other parts were also fascinating. @publicvoit
