Thesis of critical chronology sais:
The traditional year-count has
This appears pretty strange and in contrast to our school knowledge
year-count of history is ok

...may be a challenge against common sense, because this can only be
1. Time data and year-count are always linked
data (e.g. Equinox-date, Eclipses, Length of day, 14C-Calibration,
Ice-Cores) always call for additional hypotheses to comply with a

presumptions by leading scientists
- At the Nicea concile (325) the equinox was
reset to march 21st, its traditonal date [Gregory XIII.]
- Augustus did correct surplus switching days that preceded the
construction of his Horologium.
- The typical deviations between pre-medieval eclipse
reports (coverage, year,
and retrocalculation can be explained from 'deformation
tendencies'. [A. Demandt]
- Eclipse analysis shows: Earth's rotation undergoes long-term
periodic variations. [R.
- After millennia of stability, some 700 years ago the atmosphere's
14C/12C ratio changed
- The 14C-difference
between atmosphere and sea has changed
too since antiquity [Aa.;Ba.;Bo.]
dendrochronology is perfect, disprooving
