Reading Latin- Caesar Book IV – Britain

Birgitta Hoffmann

In the Summer 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 examples from the letters of Pliny the Younger

For the grammar exercises we are using Latin Prose Composition
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 Latin prose composition (translating English into Latin) feel free to ask to come for a trial session, if you are unsure.
