    The idea: Extended date range from 4000 to 9999. Together with BC years  that means from 9999 BC to AD 9999 (either with or without a year zero.)

     

    Even though at present the oldest written sources date back to about 4000 BC, numbering systems predate those even further, as pointed out by mardikennedy in the thread Wish list for extended calendar support

     

    Many thanks to (in order of appearance in the thread to) CamelCase_data, Computor, beverly, TorstenBernhard, historychef, and mardikennedy for their help
