Some historians believe that the first authenticated and historically formulated calendars date back to the Bronze Age, based on the development of writing in the ancient Near East, while others consider the Sumerian calendar to be the oldest, followed by the Egyptian, Assyrian and Elamite calendars.
This year is the 6263rd Egyptian year. This solar calendar was developed by the ancient Egyptians to divide the year into 13 months. It depends on the cycle of the sun, and is considered one of the first calendars known to mankind.
Many indicate that the ancient Egyptian calendar was the first accurate calendar known to man throughout history.
