Hi, I wondering Why Splunk Enterprise shows at Data Summary the earliest event from 48 years ago.

Can it be erased or solved?.

The most likely explanation is that the timestamp for some log source is being incorrectly interpreted. Can you find any events that Splunk thinks are 48 years old and look at their raw source?

Seems like few events of yours have been assigned _time as 0 (epoch value), which is 1970-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 (UTC), about 48 years ago. This should clear off when the bucket containing this event is frozen. This mostly happens when correct timestamp extraction has not happened for events (invalid value selected as timestamp), you may want to check if all your sourcetypes have proper timestamp extractions defined (per your data).
