B.C.E. (aka B.C.) It’s All Ancient History B.C. means before the birth of Christ Also known as B.C.E. or Before Common Era 0 B. C E C. E

C.E. (aka A.D) C.E. stands for Common Era Also known as Anno Domini (year of our Lord) 0 B. C. E C. E

Moving through Historical Time When trying to calculate how much time has passed between two points in history consider this: When moving between two dates in the same era (300 C.E and 500 C.E) or (600 B.C.E and 200 B.C.E.) you subtract the larger from the smaller

Moving through Historical Time When trying to calculate how much time has passed between two points in history consider this: When moving between two dates from different eras (300 B.C.E. to 300 C.E) you add the two numbers together. Why Add? 300 to 0 PLUS 0 to 300= 600
