Date of Caesar’s landing in Britain

The Times had a brief notice yesterday of a topic that has been running on line for a week or more, the date of Julius Caesar’s landing. Scientists have worked out the tides for 55 BC, and reckon the landing must have taken place four days earlier than the received date.

Might be interesting if anyone is reading de Bello Gallico.
