References for dating the end of 'Ancient history'
"kya" as undefined acronym
What does 'kya' mean? Why is it used here, and in other ancient-history related articles, without anyone bothering to note what it means? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:01, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Mississipian culture forms in 1100 BCE... NOT
In the "Brief ancient chronology," which is replicated on other pages about ancient history on Wikipedia, there's something in there about the Mississipian culture forming at 1100 BCE. Someone made a huge mistake there, because it existed around 800 CE to 1500 CE, not BCE. A simple visit to its article will convince the readers that it ended right around when European explorers started showing up in North America.
Correct date of Euclid's Elements
Chronology says Euclid's Elements completed c. 500 BC. See page on Euclid's Elements - a more reasonable date would be c. 300 BC.
Date of Reconstruction of Jerusalem's Temple
"24: The temple of Jerusalem is reconstructed.". If this is referring to Herod the Great's expansions, isn't the date wrong since he died in 4 BCE?
"Flavius Josephus records that Herod the Great completely rebuilt the Temple in 20-18 BCE, even going so far as to replace the foundation stones and to smooth off the surface of the Temple Mount. This Temple became known as Herod's Temple."
I don't feel comfortable making the change, because I'm not that knowledgeable on the subject, but I do believe the date of 24 CE is incorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:58, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
