Look at the output of "last" -- also, see the auth log file, which is usually in /var/log/secure, /var/log/authlog, or /var/log/auth.log (the exact name varies by distro). Note that if someone gained root access to your machine, though, they can wipe out the logs to cover their tracks. Therefore, if you suspect a root compromise you have to assume the logs are untrustworthy.
