Reading Latin: Caesar, Gallic War and Civil War

Caesar’s Gallic War is the Classic first text to study as an original. The first book deals with Caesar’s first contact with the Helvetii and the encounter with Ariovist near Basle.

Learning materials will be provided, but a Latin/English dictionary will be useful.
