Archaic Communications. A good joke.

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.”
