Subject: RE: Ring Around The Rosey's History??
I wonder what happened in 1768 BC that was so significant to them that they started counting years. Maybe one of them had a premonition that there would be a catastrophic eruption in 123 years time, so they had better start counting so they would know when to expect it.
