Begs the question, how the "hell" did the ancients manage to build those stairs there?

I've seen footage of a deer in a natural carbon dioxide sink, and it lasted for several minutes before escaping. The whole point of taking a canary into a coal mine is that the tiny bird dies long before the miners are even in trouble. It is possible that this natural vent is much less toxic to humans than to birds.

Pure speculation, they might have used long handled tools to prep the ground, then slid stones into place with poles and/or ropes. Or they might have darted in and out to do the work in very short intervals.

It is also possible that any number of people died during construction, as they did building the pyramids and the Great Wall.Ancient people driven by religious conviction and superstitious fervor (and whips -- not condoning, just saying) could accomplish some amazing feats of engineering.

NICE FIND....It is this kind of stuff that inspires my imagination. Ancient architecture is amazing.

I'm sure that someone will come along and disprove this, but still...
