    • Lifetime of Earth religious leader Jesus of Nazareth, who is born at the begining of this century in a stable as the Doctor was staying in the last room at the inn. (DW: Voyage of the Damned) In the centuries after his execution by the Romans, it becomes standard practice among many Earth cultures to base their calendar upon the approximate year of his birth, with events before his birth said to occur in the BC or "Before Christ" era and those after taking place in the AD or anno domini era; in more recent years the use of BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) have come to be used as a non-religious alternative, although their use has yet to become widespread.
    • Roman soldiers are taken from this time to fight the War Lords' war games. (DW: The War Games)
