For the historians amongst us

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."
