Telegraphy

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, French

scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came

to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network

more than 150 years ago.

 

 

Not to be outdone by the French:

In the weeks that followed, American archaeologists dug to a depth of 20 feet

before finding traces of copper wire. Shortly afterwards, they

published an article in the New York Times saying : "American

archaeologists, having found traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have

concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech

communications network 50 years earlier than the French."

 

 

A few weeks later, ‘The British Archaeological Society of Northern England’

reported the following: "After digging down to a depth of 33 feet in

the Skipton area of North Yorkshire in 2011, Charlie Hardcastle, a self-

taught local amateur archaeologist, reported that he had found

absolutely bugger all. Charlie has therefore concluded that 250 years

ago, Britain had already "gone wireless".

 

Just makes you bloody proud to be British.
