The earth's year is not a consistent 365 days, often there is an extra quarter of a day that accumulates each year which causes the date of the equinox to shift.
In layman's terms, the equinox happens because the planet earth is not tilted towards the sun while the sun is directly above the equator. This causes the equinox to happen.
Ancient civilizations have noticed solar changes because they've been watching and keeping track of the sun's movements not only for a hundred years but for thousands of years.
