    Copper wire

    Copper Pairs

    After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British 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 Brits, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story published in the New York Times: "American archaeologists, finding 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 British".

    One week later, the New Zealand Herald, reported the following:
    "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Onerahi, Bill Paku a self-taught archaeologist and avid Motorhomer reported that he found absolutely bugger all. Paku has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, New Zealand had already gone wireless."

    Makes you so bloody proud to be a Kiwi!!!
