Calvary or Golgotha

Calvary or Golgotha  was the site, outside of ancient Jerusalem’s early first century walls, at which the crucifixion of Jesus is said to have occurred. Calvary and Golgotha are the English names for the site used in Western Christianity. Golgotha is the Greek transcription given by the New Testament, of an Aramaic title, which has traditionally been presumed to be Gūlgaltā (but see below for an alternative); the Bible glosses it as place of [the] skull — Κρανίου Τόπος (Kraniou Topos) in Greek, and Calvariae Locus in Latin, from which we get Calvary.

Calvaria (skull) The calvaria (or calva, skullcap, plural calvariae) is the upper part of the cranium and surrounds the cranial cavity containing the brain.
