Ca. is short for the Latin word ‘circa’, which means ‘around’. It means that we don’t know exactly what year this event happened in, but it was around this time.

This word ‘circa’ is related to the word ‘circus’, which the Romans used to mean a circular racetrack. And it is related to our word ‘circle‘.
