 Daniel and the Watchers
Most of them were written from the second century BC to the early centuries AD, and they are so obviously spurious that not even staunch Bible believers consider them authentic.
That 1 Enoch has been assigned a 2nd-century BC date, which has not been seriously disputed, is relevant to the debate on the dating of Daniel, because other pseudepigrapha dated at this same general time show that it was then customary to refer to angels as watchers.
Jubilees, another 2nd-century BC work, narrated the same myth about "angels of the Lord, who were called Watchers," coming from heaven to engage in sexual relations with human women (4:15, 21-23).

In the 15th Century, a metal astrolabe was developed by Abraham Zacuto in Lisbon, which improved on the accuracy of its wooden Arabian precursors.
The astrolabe reached the Islamic world in the 8th or 9th century, and it was re-introduced to Europe via Islamic Spain in the 11th century (early Christian recipients of Arab astronomy included Gerbert of Aurillac and Hermannus Contractus).
In the 16th century, Johannes Stöffler published Elucidatio fabricae ususque astrolabii, a manual of the construction and use of the astrolabe.

 Sun Tzu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
However, the biography is not consistent with other sources for the period, and both the form and content of The Art of War indicate that it was most likely written between 400 BC and 320 BC.
Sun Tzu's own work, The Art of War appears to provide a number of direct clues to his life, for example, war chariots described by Sun Tzu were used for a relatively brief period ending in the 4th century BC and so dates at least part of the work to that time.
Sun Bin, also known as Sun the Mutilated, a crippled descendent of Sun Tzu, also wrote a text known as the Art of War although possibly a more accurate title might be the Art of Warfare since this was more directly concerned with the practical matters of warfare.
