Battery terminals - noob alert!

Hi all,
My wife has a 2001 RAV4. I was out of town and the battery was removed when she went away but now no-one knows which way round the battery terminals connect to the battery and they are not marked.
Please let me know how to identify the positive and negative terminals.
PS This is a right-hand drive model if that makes any difference.

The cable to the negative terminal will be short, and the other end will be bolted to the body. The positive terminal will have a box on it, which contains fusible links (fuses).

On our 2005, the positive terminal is the one toward the center of the car.
