Starting new millenium...or is it starting from 1001?...anyway:

A calendar with a year of 360 days divided in 12 months of 27 or 28 days is introduced in India. Since this falls short of an actual year,the Indians add an extra month at regular intervals.It is also possible that Indians use 12 months of 30 days each,a plan that still falls short of the actual length of the year.

Spoliation of the Canterbury cathedral by the Dane invaders. Archbishop Aelfeah is assasinated. A Danish Christian, Thorkell hàvi, disgusted by that murder, turns coat and joing king Ethelred II of the Angles.

This is supposed to have prompted the 1014 invasion by Sven the First of Denmark.
