Technological Advance

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, English
scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in
the UK newspapers read: "English 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, "Malayala manorama," a popular malayalam newspaperin Kerala (INDIA), reported
the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Kunnamkulam,
Kuttappan, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found
absolutely nothing. Kuttappan has therefore concluded that 300 years ago
Kerala had already gone wireless."
