Good Roman Links

Wow, so we're getting around to making a "links" page/area. Yay! Wonder how I can EASILY keep it up-to-date. If you have a good link we should list, great, please e-mail me at varianus@romanobritain.org.

Roman Informational Sites

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 banner

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!


RAT and RAT-satellite sites:

Ancient Warfare Magazine--A great magazine, in English, about, what else, Ancient Warfare.
http://www.ancient-warfare.com


The Roman Hideout -- An awesome websie with really great info AND pix of original Roman kit. Helmets and weapons and everything. AND... they are nice people, freely allowin gus to use stuff form their website. Helping one another, at least all of us "Romans" doing so. A good thing!


Ludus Militis

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

Wheelock

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 :

  • 40 chapters with grammatical explanations and readings drawn from the works of Rome's major prose and verse writers;

  • Self-tutorial exercises, each with an answer key, for independent study;

  • An extensive English-Latin/Latin-English vocabulary section;

  • A rich selection of original Latin readings—unlike other textbooks, which contain primarily made-up Latin texts;

  • Etymological aids, maps, and dozens of images illustrating aspects of the classical culture and mythology presented in the chapter readings .

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.
