Events of Jingo, The Last Continent


This is one of the benchmarks of the timeline, mentioned specifically in Feet of Clay as being the 300th anniversary of the Ankh-Morpork Civil War (1688).


It seems necessary to make dates fit to assume that the named century ends not on the 00s, but on the 88s. 7a twice is a significant number on Discworld, and the last great change of government was in 1688. Carpe Jugulum mentions that the century is ending, and millennial events follow in Thief of Time and Night Watch. These suggest that the University calendar lags ours by twelve years.
