Latin - Ora Maritima - A Story for Beginners 1h3mins
Ora Maritima is a story in simple Latin written by Sonnenschein during the reign of Queen Victoria. It is set near Dover during the school holidays - and the students take a day hike to a location thought to be Caesar's landing place. The books is a gentle introduction to ideas contained in Caesar's Gallic War, while providing a pleasant enough story in and of itself. Interestingly, a reference is made in the story to the 'Castle Line' - these were passenger ships that sailed between South Africa and Southampton in the days before air travel. My grandparents travelled on one of their ships, the 'Union Castle' . Airliners have names, do you remember the name of a single airliner you ever travelled on? Ships are different aren't they?
