It is always a start when you read something to your children and not only cannot answer the question, but have no idea what the answer is.
Last night I am reading WMD #1 from a book titled Oh, Yikes!: History’s Grossest Moments…(note to self…no more Border’s gift cards until he goes to college)…and came upon a date reference for Attila the Hun that finishe with the letters “CE”.
I had no idea what it meant, although I knew Attila lived in the 5th century AD.
Today, I discover that CE stands for Common Era, and is an alternative to AD. I also discovered there is a controversy extant over the use of “CE” and “BCE”.
