Phil Dunlop Posted January 31, 2008 Share Posted January 31, 2008 After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago. Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the London newspapers read: "English archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the Scots." One week later, "The Western Mail," a Welsh newspaper, reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Tregaron, Dai Digger Davies, a self taught archaeologist and eminent worrier of sheep, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Taffy has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Wales had already gone wireless." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
