If he had not landed there, life as we know it today would be very different.

True story?
He = HAM?
Relevant when this happens? If so, in some old geological era? In the last 10000 years? In the last 1000? In the last 100?

Did this happen in year 944? 944 years ago?

If not, did this happen in 10th century? 11th? 12th? .... 20th?

Landed = Arrived in a particular place? On foot? Riding a horse? On a ship?

Long-shot: Columbus relevant?

Wow, you're good...today (the 28th) is the anniversary of his landing at Pevensey Bay in Sussex, England, according to Wikipedia.

And that's the ***SPOILER***

Ooops, sorry, I didn't mean an early spoiler... But given the year 1066, anyone (I think) will first try to rule out Hastings. Anyway, I didn't know about the anniversary, so thanks.

Huh, that's interesting. That battle came up in two puzzles this week, one of them my own, and in both cases it was Rbruma who worked out that it was relevant.

Maybe Rbruma's related to William the Conqueror? :-p Just kidding :-D But according to my dad, my ancestors came over there with his people! *lol* true so far as my dad is concerned...which doesn't necessarily make it really true (see my silly puzzle for example...)
