Purpose of use
To point out the error in the page
I was taken to surprise when I noted that for most of the dates, we get incorrect days as answer when I used this page for calculating the days. As example to quote, 15th March, 44 BC (When Ceasar was murdered) the calculation returns as Wednesday which by actual calculation turns to be Friday. Further for every 400 years the Gregorian calendar repeats itself with same days altogether. In that aspect, we would expect same day for both 15th March, 44 BC as well as 15th March 357 AD which according to this calculation turns to be on Saturday which actually should be on Friday. I request you to kindly check these errors and make necessary changes to get right answers. I have been carrying research work in calendars right from my young age and I have more than 20 books in view of popularizing mathematics in India. Hope you find these information useful and take this comment in right spirit because we should not spread false information in social media. Thanks.

Research for historical fiction novel
For the previous commenter from September, 2019:
539 BC is calculated as -538, since the AD/BC numbering system has no year 0 between 1 BC and 1 AD.
Examples: year 0 = 1 BCE, -100 is 101 BCE, -538 is 539 BCE.

Purpose of use
To find the day of the week for Oct 5 539 BCE
What day of the week is Oct 5 539 BCE, Sun or Mon? If I type Oct 5th 539 BC it gives the result for -538 BC which is Monday. If I type Oct 5th 540 BC the result is Oct 5th -539 BC which is a Sunday. Which one is correct?

Bug report
In Microsoft, this formula:
gives Sunday

but this web site gives Monday.

One or other is wrong, unless it's me.
from Keisan
There are bugs in Excel concerning dates.
The correct answer is 'Monday'.
