READING LATIN ON MONDAY: Pliny, Book 7 The Human Animal

 

Birgitta Hoffmann

Pliny the Elder, best known for his activities during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD, spend a lot of his active life as an equestrian procurator collecting material for his book on the Natural World, in effect a fantastically detailed encyclopedia covering everything from mining techniques to geography and bee keeping.

The course will be reading Book 7, which deals with Humans and their behaviour. 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.

Tyler T Travillian (ed. 2015), Pliny the Elder. The Natural History Book VII. London: Bloomsbury Latin Texts.
