Description: A guide to deciphering Roman numeral year dates as commonly found in both modern and early printed books, including a Java applet that accepts Roman numeral input in the range 1-4,999 and converts it to Arabic form. The page explains the basic principles for converting numbers from Roman to Arabic form and also describes some of the unusual features of Roman numerals that may be encountered in older books. It does not provide a history of the origin or development of Roman numerals; nor does it attempt to explain the ancient practice of numeration, or to prescribe present-day usage.
