  • ("BP") A time scale used in archaeology, geology, and other scientific disciplines to specify when events in the past occurred. Because the "present" time changes, standard practice is to use 1950-01-01 as the arbitrary origin of the age scale. "BP" may also be considered to be an abbreviation of Before Physics. (Wikipedia)
