Latin Teaching: Some useful things

 Having taught Latin to secondary students for a number of years, I have found some useful things along the way, both for the study of the language and for the social-historical context. Below are listed a few things which may be old news for some, but perhaps not for others.

  • Perseus Digital Library

Perseus has been around for a while and is still a great source of texts. There are analytical tools available for translators along with dictionaries, translations and commentaries. In more recent times, the Hopper format has provided the ability to place a range of resources alongside in the window.

  • Livius – Articles on ancient history

Livius is a great site for matters relating to Roman History. It is particularly useful for biographical information on key Roman figures and is cross linked effectively.

  • UNRV

UNRV is less detailed than Livius, but a better resource for gaining a good overview of events and where they fit into the flow of history.

  • Forum Romanum

Forum Romanum contains a range of resources relating to the history of Ancient Rome. There is a  very useful text archive alongside scanned and indexed secondary historical resources, albeit a little dated.
