    After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientist Graeme McGinty 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, Welsh scientist David Llewellwyn dug to a depth of 20 meters. Shortly after, articles in the Welsh newspapers read: "Welsh archaeologists have found traces of 200-year old copper wire, and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network one
    hundred years earlier than the Scots."

    One week later, "The Klub", a Sunburg, Minnesota newspaper reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in corn fields near Games Lake, Ole Johnson, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago Norwegians were already using wireless."
