Reading Latin on Monday: Livy, Ab Urbe Condita Book 1

Birgitta Hoffmann

Between 27 BC and 9BC Titus Livius wrote a monumental history of Rome from the arrival of Aeneas to his own time, hence Ab urbe condita (from the foundation of the town).  Only about a quarter of the original work survives, including the first books relating many of the early stories of the foundation of Rome.

The course will be reading Book 1. The text will be provided, but if you prefer a text with annotations, we recommend the Bristol Classical Press edition, which can be got from a range of sellers, including here. A Latin/English dictionary will be very useful.

Newcomers are always welcome but should ensure that they are familiar with Latin Grammar and vocabulary at roughly A-level or beyond, feel free to ask to come for a trial session if you are unsure.
