We have spent considerable time learning the Roman Numeral system today; we learnt that they only had 7 letters for numbers and nothing for the number zero!
The easiest way we found to remember it was to break the number down...
i.e. with 1976
What is the roman numeral for one thousand? M
What is the roman numeral for nine hundred? CM
What is the roman numeral for seventy? LXX
What is the roman numeral for six? VI
So... MCMLXXVI = 1976.
