Quintus' mission in Britain continues—to find Barbillus' son, Rufus.  But the news from the province is not good: Cogidubnus, king of one of the British tribes, is seriously ill.

Prepare for a race against time.  Quintus (our hero) gets involved in conspiracy, chases, and deadly intrigue.  We continue our journey to the legionary fortress of Chester, but first, to the spa-town of Bath.

The Cambridge series continues with more involved sentence structure and longer stories.  And, of course, more grammar!

Latin Class Objectives

Why study Latin?

Latin students learn grammar, which directly improves their English grammar.  Latin students consistently score higher than other language students on the verbal portion of the SAT.  Latin vocabulary makes the study of any science easier.  And, as at least one Latin textbook mentions, the study of Latin makes anything else seem easy in comparison.
