@mgb Would it be true to say that another reason for the lack of mega-projects was the lack of reinforced building techniques (E.g. Roman Cement)? As for the Roman Arch I am creating a notation in my post. Would you agree that the Roman Vault and Dome should still be included?

Great point. It is my understanding that the Roman Arch was still in use in previously built structures. However, I was under the impression that specifically in Europe the Roman arch was not implemented in new structures for years until the Gothic Arch was invented. I do not hesitate to suggest that I may be incorrect in regards to this topic. If you have any further information on the Roman Arch please comment. I will be glad to update my answer. Thanks again. :–)

Possibly the Science of Language (Linguistics).?. Some argue that currently language is regressing. However, I am not convinced. Though it may be true that a larger percentage of people (including myself) don't utilize proper grammar, I am not finding evidence to suggest the actual Science has weakened/regressed. Has anyone found examples of Linguistic regression further back in human history?

All Hypatia's work is lost except for its titles and some references to it. It appears she was murdered for her charismatic teaching of mathematics and science which may have been viewed negatively by religious leaders (415 AD). Soon after her murder many scholars departed which marked the beginning of the decline of Alexandria as a major centre of ancient learning. @Sardathrion +1 for your comment and +1 if this were to be an answer. :–) I had to look this up, and I am glad I did. Very interesting. Thanks again.

comment History of scientific regression
I don't want the words "scientific" or "lost" to be misunderstood. In regards to "scientific" I am referring to advancement in knowledge. This advancement may have been later viewed as Alchemy/Protoscience/Pseudoscience/Empirical Science/etc. In regards to the word "lost" I am referring to that knowledge no longer being used for whatever reason. Perhaps due to oppression, repression, catastrophe etc... I have updated the original question with the contents of this comment. Thanks for your help and answer.
