First Wireless Telephone

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York 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 out-done by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, in California archaeologists dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a headline in the LA Times newspaper proclaimed: “California 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 New Yorkers.”

One week later, a local newspaper in North Carolina, reported the following: After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Handsome Cove, Haywood County North Carolina, Luke Gallstone, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.

Luke has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, North Carolina had already gone wireless.
