Cyclopean Masonry

Cyclopean masonry is a form of stonework where massive stone boulders are fitted together with minimum gaps between adjacent stones. Typically without any tooling, leftover gaps in cyclopean walls are generally filled with smaller stones without mortar. Cyclopean masonry is notably found in ancient Mycenaean architecture and is named after the mythical Cyclops who would have the strength necessary to move the enormous stones into place.

Stone masonry is a form of construction using natural stone and mortar to make load-bearing and non-bearing walls. Stone masonry types are distinguished by how tooled the stones are and whether the stones are laid in consistent mortared horizontal courses or organized in random or uncoursed ways.
