Why did the annual calendar zero out and start again (B.C. and A.D.)?

What did humanity use for a calendar or annual dating system, Before Christ (B.C.) or the year zero (0)?

    Agreed, the zero starting point most certainly was an aspect of control, almost as if to say they wished to begin a new era, perhaps this is why Jesus appeared when he did.
