probably the calendar watches that were worn by the knights were broken during the battle, so the archaeologists just had to read the time and date.

Yes, but the watches they had in 1179 would have been keeping JST (Julian Standard Time) and not GST (Gregorian Standard Time) and the article doesn't mention if the reported date has been converted to our modern calendar or not.
