  • Emperor Kazan succeeds Emperor En'yū on the throne of Japan.
  • The Song Dynasty Chinese engineer Qiao Wei innovates the first known use of the double-gated canal pound lock, for adjusting different water levels in segments of the Grand Canal of China. This dramatically helps the passage of ships, in segments with rougher waters leading slightly downhill. Qiao also has roof hangers built over the segments where double gates are installed, increasing the amount of safety for passing ships.
