Latin: "In the year of our Lord". A method of marking time using the number of years since the birth of Jesus. Often abbreviated as "A.D."

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

Some archaeologists now use C.E. - of the "Common Era", and BCE "Before the Common Era".
