A Classical Language Learning Forum

Gateway for Classics

I found this site of the Univerity of Bologna - Italy. There are many links organized by subject. The page is written in Italian but the links are in many languages and I believe that most of you can undestand some meaning (e.g. fonti numismatiche = numismatics), even if you don't master Italian.
I find interesting the archeological links http://www.rassegna.unibo.it/archguid.htmland the museums ...

par 21 #8

the only way this makes sense is by putting the word "do' at the beggining of the sentence otherwise it is a statement. is this correct by looking at the punctuation?

also due to the verb being 2nd person plural is it correct to add "your homeland" or would "the fatherland" work?

i read (from http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=believe) that in "i believe ...
