Description
The Cambridge Latin Course is a well-established and successful Latin programme developed by the Cambridge School Classics Project. It provides an enjoyable and carefully paced introduction to the Latin Language, complemented by background information on Roman culture and civilisation. The material progresses from simple stories written specially for the Course, through adaptations of Roman authors, to original texts. The texts are accompanied by explanations of key language points, and are supported by grammar practice exercises.

Book II focuses first on life in Roman Britain before moving further afield to Egypt. Other titles in the course take the reader to Pompeii and imperial Rome.

Key features of the Fourth Edition include:
- a wide range of colour photographs, many specially commissioned
- updated sections on background and culture, taking account of recent research
- revised presentation of grammatical features
- revised and expanded questions accompanying comprehension passages.
