How bridges were built in Medieval times

The original language isn't English---an animated depiction how bridging was solved by medieval engineers---very, very patient engineers (though I doubt they assigned that same title to themselves--"engineers"?) --limited to human, animal, and hydraulic resources of power for lifting, pumping, pulling, and raising stone, timber, and water.

I'm sort of astonished.

Also: you had to be very patient to watch this stuff happen; I guess some building projects went on for 40 years; no wonder medieval guilds could exert power and then have father-to-son relationships handed off to patrons and each other.
