Reading Latin: Caesar, de Bello Gallico Book 4: Crossing the Rhine and Britain

Birgitta Hoffmann

In the autumn we will be translating Caesar’s Book IV of the Gallic Wars. In many ways, this is the most derring-do of the books, which involves building the first bridge crossing of the Rhine (in record times!) and the first British expedition.

We will continue to translate and discuss the text as well as alternating with grammar exercises and exercises of translating English into Latin. In addition, we will be reading passages from the later books and the Gallic War to study particular grammatical usage.

For the grammar exercises we are using Wilding’s, Latin course for schools. Vol. 3.
Learning materials will be provided, but a Latin/English dictionary will be useful.

Newcomers are always welcome but should ensure that they are familiar with the material in Wilding’s up to Volume 3, feel free to ask to come for a trial session, if you are unsure.

10 sessions, starting from 3th October 2018.
