Dear Andy and all others,

The determination of the time of the shower comes from numerical 
simulations of the formation and evolution of meteoroid dust trails from 
comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle.
Indeed the orbit of that comet is poorly contrainted 1000 years ago, 
unless observations are provided. the first observation of this comet 
dates from 1333, so this helps a lot.

You can have a look at the 2002 predictions for more details (same URL, 
see the "anvigation" menu)
