Getting the date of an ancient date

There have recently been a few studies of the ancient world which have been aided by astronomy:

Dating Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain through tides (effects of the moon)

Dating Odysseus's Return from the Trojan War through a (suspected) Solar Eclipse

And Thale's eclipse which I blogged about before.

A lot of this stuff I get from Rogueclassicism.
