Useful Websites

Perseus Digital Library

The single best site for reading Latin (and Greek) is Perseus Tufts - it contains texts, translations and dictionaries along with heaps of archaeological resouces and more.

For translation made easy, but with a less authentic translating experience, try reading with no dictionaries.

Classical Civilization: Bill Thayer has amalgamated a great collection of materials in translation at Lacus Curtius.

ancienthistory.about.com also has tonnes of great information and activities

Beauty of Spoken Latin

Brace yourself for Wilfried Stroh's impassioned reading of Virgil's Aeneid

Books

A modern retake of Homer's classical epic by our very own Mr. Hassall, now re-told with the assistance of some stop-motion barbie dolls!
