The term BP before present, is used in the first chapter on prehistory it refers to thousands of years before the present time i.e. 700,000 BP refers to 700,000 year prior to the present. The term BC Before Christ, is used rather than the politically correct but less well known term BCE Before Common Era. To convert a BC date to a BP date, add 2,000 to the BC date.
