Dear Prof Vijilant

Is it possible to trace the 1st Century Calendar mathematically?.

I.e Year 1 to Year 100

Thanks

Prashant

It won't be possible without other data. For example, when the Julian calendar was superseded by the Gregorian calendar, or the number of days people claimed they had lost when this happened. I seem to remember this was not a whole number of weeks.

Best wishes

I taught John Birt, former Director of the BBC in 1961. His homework book was the most perfect I have ever marked. And also the most neat. I could tell he was destined for great things.
One of my classmates was the poet Roger McGough, and I have a mention in his autobiography.
