大家好,我在看一本书关于十二个生肖。第一页说:“很久以前,人们没有计算年份的方法” 我知道用生肖会猜年龄,但年份的意思我不太清楚。

    It means to calculate the years,like this year,it's the year of horse.

    通过十二生肖计算年份 is just similar to calculate somebody's month of birth roughly via his or her constellation.

    150 B.C.
    990 A.D.
    This is one way to number the years.
