Yorkshire Historical Society
« on: August 12, 2011, 09:35:39 AM »

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, Canadian 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 their neighbours, in the weeks that followed, an American Archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story was published in the New York Times:

 "American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-technology communications network 50 years earlier than the Canadians".

 One week later, the British authorities reported the following:

 "After digging as deep as 30 feet in North Yorkshire, Jack Arkwright, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely 'naff all.'
 Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Britain had already gone wireless."
