kiloannum:  A word being used in a few scientific papers these days "kiloannum abbreviated (ka)" means 1000 years and is written as c. 55 Ka. 

BP is another "new" code and stands for Before Present.  The Present means a base date of 1950.   Current consensus is to use BP only when a date is derived using radiation dating procedures.  That is because since the development of the Atomic bomb and it's atmospheric testing, available atmospheric radiation has affected the radiation levels in certain material which requires special test procedures that take that into account.  Otherwise dating not related to radiation, such as before Christ (BC) and Before Common Era (BCE) are synonymous and still used the same as previous.
