Aeolians

I studied "Classical Societies" for a semester in high school. From what I remember*, the textbook divided Ancient Greece between Dorians and Ionians. It wasn't until I started looking at the language that I learnt there was a third race.

My question is, can anyone direct me to website that has a map showing the three races? Or, could anyone give me a basic rundown of whereabouts the Aeolians lived?





*My memory might be fuzzy. ...

I went to see this movie. And I know there are aways little historic mistakes in this kind of movies. But mostly it does not disturb the performance. Nevertheless, after this movie I was very disapointed! And I was not ...

Graecorum librorum inopia

Today I finally received "Greek For Beginners" by L.A. Wilding.

I must say that I am disappointed. The accents are ignored and there are not even any long alpha iota upsilion markings nor are there convenient word lists before exercises. Then Wilding basically tells me to truck off and read the A&M Primer, with scarce explanations in the book itself. There is also an overload of exercises. The dual is also ignored. I am impartial ...

regarding movies employing the Latin language

Many years ago I saw a movie that was scripted completely in Latin, but I cannot recall the movie title. In fact, it was so long ago that I can't even remember what it was about. It must have been made in the 1970s, I'm pretty sure I saw it during that decade.
