Imperium is a Latin course for the 21st century; unique, highly resourced and written to make fullest use of modern technology. Its texts follow the life of the Emperor Hadrian from his early childhood to his later years, as he became the most powerful man in the Roman world.

Book 1 follows the young Hadrian through his childhood in Spain and Rome. His early interests in horses, hunting and the amphitheatre are all explored, as he becomes the ward of Trajan and eventually makes his way to Rome. The historical material is close to accurate throughout, though some characters have been invented to make life challenging, such as the rather nasty little donkey who bullies Hadrian’s first horse.

This full text of Book 1 can be used freely by students and teachers, though copying and pasting has been disabled. Users are encouraged to deploy other resources alongside the text, such as the Site Support Pack or other files. For details, see: www.imperiumlatin.com

I am really enjoying these books - I have all 3. I am trying to help my daughter prepare for her Latin GCSE and I really wanted a resource with a different approach - highly recommended.

succinct yet comprehensive for younger learners.

Good to have the MP3 to go with Book 1. The material seems fine, but a bit disappointed that no macrons are used, i.e. familia (N) and familiā (Abl.)
