After having dug to a depth of 3 metres last year, Melbourne 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 Victorians, in the weeks that followed, a Sydney archaeologist dug to a depth of 7 metres, and shortly after, a story published in the Sydney Morning Herald read:

"New South Wales archaeologists, finding traces of  130-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 30 years earlier than the Victorians".

One week later, the Courier Mail in Brisbane , Queensland , reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 15 metres in his pasture near Beenleigh , Queensland , John Brown, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely f##k all.  John has therefore concluded that 130 years ago, Queensland had already gone wireless."
