Anno Domini (Latin): "In the year of our Lord".
A method of marking time using the number of years since the birth of Jesus. It is often abbreviated as "A.D."

The years before the birth of Jesus are designated "Before Christ", or "B.C."

Some archaeologists now use C.E. ("Of the Common Era"), and B.C.E. ("Before the Common Era").
