Minimus – starting out in Latin

Barbara Bell

Led by Minimus the mouse, pupils learn basic grammar and Latin vocabulary through stories featuring a real family who lived at Vindolanda. Minimus provides a step-by-step explanation of the grammar points, and there are plenty of practice exercises.

At the same time, pupils’ knowledge of Roman Britain is broadened by way of vividly illustrated range of myths and background information.
