Roman Times -- http://ancientimes.blogspot.com/ -- An online magazine about current archaeology and classical research into the lives of inhabitants of the Roman Empire and Byzantium. Edited by Mary Harrsch, this site, really a blog on steroids, has an AWESOME amount of good info on it. Definetely, give it a look! More than one look actually.
Yorkshire Archaeological Society -- This website aims to increase the profile of our Roman heritage, and provide a focal point for anyone with an interest in Roman Yorkshire, whether they be a professional archaeologist, or just have a passing curiosity in what happened in our region nearly 2000 years ago. This is a new project and will take some time to fully develop, so please bear with us whilst that happens. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to let us know - we will take all comment on board - and might even publish them!

A website that investigates the real "how's" and "why's" of the Roman military. It includes Tactica a manual that has actual researched Roman commands and tactics from antiquties, not those simply MADE UP by reenactors and Hollywood.
Wheelock's Latin -- When Frederic M. Wheelock’s Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; one reviewer predicted that the book “might well become the standard text” for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, nearly six decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate.
This new edition of Wheelock’s Latin, has all the features, many of them improved and expanded that have made it the bestselling single-volume beginning Latin textbook :
Also included are expanded notes on the literary passages, comments on vocabulary, and translation tips; new comprehension and discussion questions; and new authentic classical Latin readings, including Roman grafitti in every chapter.
