The convention is based on Exiguus' determination of the year in which Jesus Christ was born.For instance, in the date AD 2001, the prefix "AD" stands for "Anno Domini" which is Latin for "the year of our Lord." Similarly, in the date 500 BC, the suffix "BC" stands for "Before Christ." In sixth century Europe, the concept of "zero" was still unknown. Furthermore, modern scholars believe Christ's birth was actually four years earlier than Exiguus thought.Was it because they understood the life span of years they lived really were "in the year(s) of the Lord"? The western-style year dating convention commonly used in many parts of the world was created by the monk Dionysius Exiguus in or about the year AD 532.Clam (Blaauw, 2010; this version 2.2) was written to perform 'classic' age-depth modelling - prior to applying more sophisticated techniques such as Bayesian age-depth modelling.A recent version of the free open-source statistical software R (current version 3.0.1; R Development Core Team, 2013) should also be installed on your computer.Please do cite clam (Blaauw, 2010) in your work, as well as its version (most recent 2.2), calibration curve(s) used (e.g., Reimer et al., 2013) and the settings applied to obtain the age-models. See later for special cases such as mixed marine/terrestrial dates.Negative radiocarbon ages are calibrated with one of the postbomb curves from Hua et al.
AD stands for Anno Domini (In the year of our Lord)So, if I get it correctly, the adherents to this change of terms want to eliminate the reason for the division of time? He is Lord, whether we want Him to be or not, it seems.
Clam consists of some 1200 lines of R code (file clam. Different unzipping programs will treat folders within zip-files in different ways.
Thus you might end up with a clam folder nested within another clam folder.
It said a lot about Curle and the dynamic which will remain pivotal to the Blues' fortunes from here.
