300 Year Old Wireless Found
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, British scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the UK newspapers read:   "British 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 in Portland, Oregon, The Oregonian reported the following:  "After digging as deep as 30 meters in hay fields near Milwaukie, Oregon, Archibald Digby, a self taught and schooled archeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.   Digby has therefore concluded that 300 years ago Oregon had already gone wireless."
