After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and concluded that their ancestors had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, California scientists dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times read: 'California archaeologists found traces of 200 year old copper wire and concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'
One week later, 'The Daily Advertiser', a newspaper in Lafayette reported the following:
'After trenching and digging as deep as 30 feet in rice fields near Guedan, Boudreaux, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Boudreaux reached the conclusion that 300 years ago, Louisiana had already gone wireless.'
