TIMELINES

In history it is helpful to put events in their time order: CHRONOLOGICAL order.

Dates and events are put in order along a line:

 

OLDEST __________________________________________________________________MOST RECENT

 

For very old dates, the timeline is split in half. It is split into events BEFORE the birth of Jesus and AFTER the birth of Jesus:

 

Pyramids are built                                            Birth of Jesus                                                                     Now

I_________________________________________I___________________________________________I

                     BC                                                                                                 AD

                  ( BCE )                                                                                           (ACE)

 

We use the terms, BC and AD to describe which part of the timeline we are describing.

BC= BEFORE Jesus was born

AD= AFTER Jesus was born ( from the Latin Anno Domini)

You will sometimes see these written as BCE ( Before the Common Era) and ACE (After the Common Era). They mean the same!

Dates on a timeline: Be very careful when putting BC dates on your timeline - they tell how many years before Jesus was born. SO the closer you are to the birth of Jesus, the lower the number! Take a look:
