GRAMMAR ON MY SITE (back to top)

VIATORES (WAYFARERS), TAKE NOTE:
I have organized these grammar pages in a way I have found useful in working with my own students and in having studied and taught Latin over the years.  For example, pages may use the circumflex symbol ^ over a vowel to indicate a macron (long mark).  Your teacher may wish you to categorize or learn the material differently.

Check all noun endings on my Noun Declension Page.

Plus auxiliî dê nôminibus: my Irregular Noun Page

Convert dates and years into the Roman calendar, thanks to Michael Kennedy: Roman Calendar Converter


The Latin Library (Watch out for the "wavering" use of u/v, sometimes even in the same text, e.g. Aeneid, which freaks out my students.  Otherwise, there's no more complete resource on the net.)

A must-see German link: Mark Aurel

VRoma, the online community for learning and teaching.  You can visit as a guest, become a VRoman, or just use the resources (the scroll on the right), of which the images collection is invaluable.

Well-organized, useful links at Forum Romanum

Useful site from Britain, but I would prefer if it were called "Some of the" rather than "The" Classics Pages (the site owner has translated Harry Potter into Ancient Greek).

Diotima, "Materials for the Study of Women and Gender in the Ancient World."  Exhaustive collection of links and onsite research, but last updated Nov. 25, 2005.

E. L. Easton Latin page, where you will find online audio Latin, Latin in movies, textbook resources, online courses, promotional materials, and more.  Easton also has great links for other languages at the same site. 

List of metasites assembled by Dr. Melissa Bishop

Classical texts, many unavailable elsewhere, with great internal and external links at LacusCurtius (texts page)

Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, a real godsend on the web with the kind of information that only the nineteenth-century classicists can pull off (Trust me, your teacher has or wants a book like this one), again at LacusCurtius (homepage)

Recognized by the Discovery Channel for excellence, "Jay's Roman History, Technology and Coins Site," a.k.a.
Romeweb, now available in archive only, is worth a look.

Materials collected by the Dalton School
See especially the Maps Page.

Illustrated History of the Roman Empire, broken down into easily digestible topics pages

Livius, self-described as "Articles on Ancient History," and deserving of the appellation: from Romans in Holland to the cursus honorum to messianic figures in turn-of-the era Judaism, it's there.

Rome at BBC, materials including women's roles, slavery, famous individuals, gladiators, and an ancient murder mystery.

Pompeii at the Discovery Channel, including a video diary of Pliny the Younger!  Cave advertisements!


Maps Page at the Dalton School (same link as above)

Maps of Rome and the Seven Hills

Bill Thayer's Gazetteer of the Roman World, again at LacusCurtius.

Tour the Roman Forum here (a gift from a Danish traveler who has made the results available in English).

Take another tour of the Roman Forum here (courtesy of a project of the students and teachers at the Lyceum De Grundel--Goeden dag en hartelijk dank, guys!  I've been to and through Hengelo and Enschede on the way to Apeldoorn and think I can even pronounce them approximately correctly.)


Myths and Legends (students, beware "neo-pagan" sites)

Check out the Encyclopedia Mythica at pantheon.org.

Bulfinch's Mythology (This version of the classic text at the Internet Sacred Texts Archive is a good fill in for the perpetually missing bulfinch.org.)  When available, Bulfinch provides first-rate information.

Check out the reliable links in Ancient Greek Myth, constantly vetted by the Berkeley Department of Classics.

Find detailed, if hard to follow, family trees, standard epithets, as well as much more at the Theoi Project (Don't look for Roman information here.)

Great materials for Morford's and Lenardon's Classical Mythology: instructor resources with free PowerPoint downloads  and student resources, including chapter summaries and practice tests, an archive of ancient and modern uses of myth, and maps (Many materials are not textbook specific, but appropriate for any myth course.)

Interactive family tree of the Greek gods (makes the relationships abundantly clear, but only limited information provided)

My Myth Class at Marquette (based on Morford and Lenardon), contains direct links to many of the OUP resources + other online tools and practices.

Nice, short versions of gods and heroes at Mythweb

Small, but cool site on Greco-Roman Origin Myths at the National Gallery of Art (clickable images with art history lessons, worksheets, etc.  You can check out this and other packets--slides included--for an entire school year.)

Small, but nicely arranged Greek, Roman, and Celtic myth at Mythography.  Try the neat online quiz.

Complete list of the Roman Consuls

The Roman Emperors  (De Imperatoribus Romanis) Page

Read accounts of the Roman People and Heroes at KET, which also maintains excellent materials for Ecce Romani.

Practice the National Latin Exam online.
More practice courtesy of  KET

Information on Roman games:
Ball Games, Board Games (board games mirrored here).  These pages provided by Dr. Wally Kowalski are also worth a look.

Need help with Latin or Greek grammar?  Teachers, check out the free downloads at Textkit, including Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar.  Students, here's some understandable assistance with Latin perfect tense and Greek verbal aspect.

Great multilingual online scholarship from Dictynna


Need images for, from, of the classical world?
1.  VRoma Image Collection (a fully searchable collection, amazing in its breadth!  Further details at VRoma above. Di tibi plurimas gratias agant, Barbara McManus!)
2.  World Art Kiosk at SJSU (50, 000 images, classics and more, easily searchable.  Thank you, Dr. Kathleen Cohen!)
3.  Classroom Clipart (I've linked to the  Ancient Rome collection, but there are numerous other areas available for free classroom and web use with proper attribution)
4.  Maecenas: Images of Ancient Greece and Rome (free for any noncommercial purposes)

Images of the Trojan War: Temple University resources

Need general images for vocabulary building?
1.  UVic's Language Teaching Clipart Library (1, 500 "basic vocabulary images" in both transparent and white backgrounds available in this easily searchable collection of daily life gif images.  Web-based use requires two simple acknowlegments/links.  From the makers of Hot Potatoes freeware.)
2.  Virtual Picture Album in the Less Commonly Taught Languages Center at UMinn's CARLA (acknowledgment for use of these resources is "appreciated" but elsewhere expected for these photographic jpegs from around the world; scenes of daily life in many cultures.)
3. Clipart Collection for Second/Foreign Language Instruction (royalty free with acknowledgment.  If you didn't find your daily life clipart at UVic, you'll find it here in these deliberately simple gif images with a Japanese flavor.)


Why study Latin?  Where can you go with Classics?
(Need to convince someone of the value of classical studies in general, and Latin in particular?  I particularly value this page of quotes from Drew University.)

Materials from the Committee for the Promotion of Latin (great materials for enrollment fairs, presentations to groups, and for decorating the classroom; click around a bit to find other resources)
