STORIES IN LATIN
at Gloucester Cathedral
Saturday 19th August 2017
This one-day course is for those with a little Latin to enjoy a day of stories from the ancient world. This course is primarily focused on the language, taking it step-by-step through the grammar and vocabulary.
There are several entertaining stories from the ancient world, including why young Virgil decided against a career in law, and what happened to Anna, Dido’s sister, after Aeneas left Africa.
And we’ll be looking at Latin words at the root of English ones.
The day is ideal for those who have attended George Sharpley's Latin for Beginners. Beginners can enrol if they complete an introductory assignment: details on request.
