this course you will refine your mastery of Latin grammar, syntax
and vocabulary by reading excerpts from the commentaries of Julius
Caesar. Written in the 50's BCE as observations on Caesar's own
campaigns against the people of Gaul and Britain, the Commentarii
provide opportunities to explore the nature of historical prose,
life in the army and the land of the Britons, the end of the Roman
res publica, and the types of people Caesar conquered.
