Description

Beginning with what the Romans themselves had to say about far-flung Britain, "Britannica Latina" presents Latin selections from British writers covering a period of 2000 years in the same user-friendly format as "Annus Horribilis" and "Annus Mirabilis". This fascinating miscellany of Anglo-Latin includes tales of King Arthur from the histories by Nennius and Geoffrey of Monmouth: the wizardry of Merlin from Geoffrey of Monmouth's Vita Merlini; the martyrdom of St Alban as told by the Venerable Bede; extracts from Domesday Book and Magna Carta; and, the Laws of Motion explained by Isaac Newton in his Principia Mathematica. Each chapter includes historical and biographical background information and informative grammatical notes, making translation fun for all Latinists. Full English translations are given at the back of the book. It's time for British Latinists to reclaim their heritage.show more
