    You may want to check out "Before the hills in order stood: the beginning of
    the geology of time in England" by John G.C.M. Fuller in Lewis, C.L.E. and
    Knell, S.J., eds., The Age of the Earth: from 4004 BC to AD 2002: Geological
    Society (London), Special Publication 190, p. 15-23.

    >From 94 AD to 1800 AD there were about 156 estimates of the age of creation.
    A frequency distribution of estimates (Fuller, fig.2) indicates numbers from
    6500 to 3600 BC, with two peaks at about 4000 BC and 5500 BC. These peaks
    correspond with the estimates based on the Septuagint and Massoretic texts.
