Interpreting Timelines
Wait a second! Is it
BC
or
BCE
??
What about
AD
and
CE
???
We have two versions:

BC/AD


BCE/CE
In this social studies course, we will use the
secular
BCE and CE abbreviations
Key Points to Remember!
The year zero does
NOT
exist
Timeline Practice
So, what
2

Timeline Rules
can we come up with to correctly count time?
Just on the
BCE
Side
OR
Just on the
CE
Side =
Huh??
Just remember, the very
first century
is years
1 to 100
.

So,
year 101
began the
second century
.

It's
ALWAYS
off by one number!
BCE
CE
BC/AD is based on the
Christian Religion
BC =
Before Christ
(ALL the time
before
the birth of Jesus)
AD =
"Anno Domini,"
which is Latin for the "Year of our Lord"
(ALL the time
after
the birth of Jesus)
BCE/CE is the
secular
(non-religious) version
BCE = Before Common Era

CE = Common Era
In
BCE
, the higher number is the oldest year.
In
CE
, the higher number is the most recent year.

The Timeline We Use
Don't worry, because it's the same thing...
For example,
1000 BC
is the
same thing
as
1000 BCE
.
8000 BCE
500 BCE
4000 BCE
1 BCE
1 CE
2014 CE
Crossing over
from BCE to CE
=
2000 BCE
4000 BCE
1000 CE
2000 CE
time passed = 2000 years
time passed = 1000 years
One last thing...
If I said to you, "
we're going to study the
15th century
,
" what years would I be talking about?
Yes, the 1400's
1500 CE
3000 BCE
time passed = 4500 years
This is further back in time!
This is closer in time to us!
More examples:
18th century = 1700's

5th century = 400's

3rd century = 200's

1800's = 19th century

1000's = 11th century
