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.

dig, dug, dug – kopać

scientist – naukowiec

traces – ślady

copper – miedziany

wire – przewód, drut

date back 100 years – pochodzić sprzed 100 lat

come to the conclusion – dojść do wniosku

ancestor – przodek

network – sieć

Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, British scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the UK newspapers read: "British 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."

not to be outdone – aby nie być gorszym

in the weeks that followed – za parę tygodni

UK = United Kingdom – Zjednoczone Królestwo (Wielka Brytania i Irlandia Północna)

headline – nagłówek

conclude – dojść do wniosku

advanced – zaawansowany

One week later, "The Kerryman", a southwest Irish newsletter, reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Tralee, Paddy O'Droll, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing."

newsletter – biuletyn

report – donosić, komunikować, informować

peat bog – torfowisko

self taught archaeologist – aracheolog samouk

Paddy has therefore concluded that 300 years ago Ireland had already gone wireless.

therefore – zatem

wireless – bezprzewodowy
