We want to delete old post in easy way, Add the following code to your current themes functions.php file and reload your page and see your post may have been deleted.

<?php
add_action( 'init', 'cxc_get_delete_old_post' );

function cxc_get_delete_old_post() {
    // WP_Query arguments
	$args = array(
		'fields' => 'ids',
		'post_type'      =>  'post', //specify your post type here.
		'posts_per_page' => '-1',    //fetch all posts,
		'date_query'     => array(
			'column'  => 'post_date',
			'before'   => date( "Y-m-d H:i:s", strtotime( '-1 year' ) ), //specify your time here.
		) 
	);
	
	// The Query
	$query = new WP_Query( $args );

    // The Loop
	if ( $query->have_posts() ) {
		while ( $query->have_posts() ) {
			$query->the_post();
			//delete post code
            //wp_trash_post( get_the_ID() );  use this function if you have custom post type
            wp_delete_post( get_the_ID(), true ); //use this function if you are working with default posts
        }    
    } else {
    	echo 'no posts found';
    	return false;
    }
    die();
    // Restore original Post Data
    wp_reset_postdata();
}
