The preconception of the "primitive" is inherent in the modern notion of evolutionary progress. If we're so good (which is accepted, and of course we're getting better) then if follow that they must have been bad way back then. How come they weren't so bad?

Science-fiction futurists may think that way, but not historians, you know how good Egyptian builders were 6000 years ago.
