At the end of February 2012 this new Group has seven members, meeting in the Lion Hotel, Shrewsbury, every 1st and 3rd Thursday.

We are working our way slowly but steadily through the Cambridge Latin Course Book and have reached about Stage 6. Anyone with a minimal acquaintance with Latin could slot in fairly easily, and absolute beginners would not need to do an awful lot to catch up. In any case, help is available!

We are a friendly and easy-going bunch and are becoming quite a feature in the Lion's bar area. We all get our refreshments from the bar and then spend about two hours studying. This will include digressions on Roman history, aspects of Roman society such as slavery, imperialism, the army and religion, among others. We also trace the origins of English vocabulary in the Latin, which is always fascinating, when contributions from group members are very welcome. We have a lot of fun but when brain death seems to be ensuing, we stop.
