Roman Numerals

It’s a little slow around here in the summer, but the LatinTeach listserv has been hopping with lots of discussions. The one that particularly caught my eye was on Roman numerals, and especially this video, based on “The Origin of the Latin Numerals 1-1000” by Paul Keyser in the American Journal of Archaeology (Oct., 1988). At eight minutes, it isn’t too long, and packs in a lot of information about the representation of numeric ideas (leaving out zero, of course!).

Are there other videos that are worth sharing here? Leave a link in the comments!
