  • Irish Archaeology

    After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientists
    found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years and came to the
    conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more
    than 1000 years ago.

    Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English
    scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in
    the English newspapers read: 'English archaeologists have found traces
    of 2000 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors
    already had an advanced high-tech communications network a thousand years
    earlier than the Scots..'

    One week later, 'The Kerrymen,' a southwest Irish newsletter, reported the following:

    'After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Tralee ,
    Paddy O'Droll, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found
    absolutely nothing. Paddy has therefore concluded that 3000 years ago
    Ireland had already gone wireless.'
