Have any of you come across the British crime writer Lindsay Davis and her informer Marcus Didius Falco? If not you have a treat in store. I can highly recommend the books which combine humour with a real flavour of living in the late 1st Century AD.

Welcome to Textkit!!! Which text are you using to learn Latin?
Have you read the Robert Graves Claudius books?
've currently got 'The Jupiter Myth' and 'The Accusers' in my to read pile.
The text is the 'Cambridge Latin Course'. The first books are set in Pompeii and are centered around life leading to the eruption of Vesuvius. Its pretty basic stuff to begin with: canis est in horto etc., But it is familiar from all those years ago. I showed it to someone at work today and she remembered it to and now wants a copy.
