That far back, nearly everything is guesswork. Birth dates are almost always WAGged based on known ages of known children, and death dates generally have to be estimated based on when the next guy inherited. Every once in a while you get a solid date - so-and-so was killed at the battle of such-and-such, Whozis daughter of Whatzis was christened here on this date - but such things are not common at all.

Ways I have seen the dating issue dealt with in pedigrees are

- the notation "flourished in the reign of" ....
- the wonderful "between" dating function in Geni

In other words, define a range tacked around the knowable facts
