Copper Wire

After having dug to a depth of 10 yards last year, New
York 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 New Yorkers, in the weeks
that followed, California scientists dug to a depth of 20 yards, and
shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: 'California
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 New

One week later, the 'Courier-Journal', a local newspaper in
Kentucky, reported the following:' After digging as deep as 30 yards in tobacco
fields near Elizabethtown in Hardin County, Bubba Johnson, a self-taught
archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore
concluded that 300 years ago, Kentucky had already gone wireless.'
