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 outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that
followed, a California archaeologist dug to a depth of 200 feet, and shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: ‘ California
archaeologists, finding traces of 200 year old copper wire,
have concluded that their ancestors already had an
advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years
earlier than the New Yorkers.’
One week later, The Des Moines Register, a local newspaper
in Iowa , reported the following: “After digging as deep as 300 [?] feet in his flower garden in Storm Lake, Iowa, Jack Kooker, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Jack has, therefore, concluded that 300 years ago, Iowa had already gone wireless.”

I ask a more fundamental question — Prove the Iowan wrong.
