How to get sqrt(Year^2)===Year?


If I have some expression which takes the square root of a square, it
evaluates leaving the whole square root expression unchanged.  

Year == (Year^2)^(1/2)

just returns what I entered when evaluated.

Year == Year

evaluates to True.

How do I persuade Mathematica to evaluate the first expression completely?
