Minimus' author coming to Hexham Book Festival and more!

Hexham Book Festival 2013
Saturday 27th April, 10:30am Queen’s Hall

Salve! Want to know what made the centurions of Vindolanda tick? In this

taster session for teaching Latin to children aged 7 and over, Barbara Bell

uses a mixture of myths, history and language to bring Latin and

Roman Britain alive.

Tickets are available from the Box Office 01434 652477 or online 

Queen’s Hall, Beaumont Street, Hexham, Northumberland, NE46 3LS

£7 adults/£5 children under 14

At a separate event on the same day, Barbara will be running an informal tour of Vindolanda and the Chesterholm Museum, helped by Catherine Jarvis, a qualified guide and Minimus Latin teacher. The tour will commence at 3pm meeting just inside the West Gate of Vindolanda in the courtyard. Please look at for more information on admission prices (normal prices will apply), access and layout of the site.

Look forward to seeing you at both events if possible!

Must rush as redecorating the B&B in time for the new season and Barbara's visit and have a paintbrush in my other hand!

vale! valete! bye for now! Catherine/Hadriana :-)

Hello Fly,

Yes - right now I feel like one! But maybe I do not have enough arms and hands.....???!!!
Things should start to calm down in a few weeks. The good news is that we have finally got our other house rented out. Yeah! Hope you and Mr. Fly are OK. I often think of you both. Abrazos. Catherine xx

Hi Nota Bene,

Thank you for dropping in. Thanks for your best wishes. Hope all is going well in NB world and family too. The last few years have been a bit hectic - hope all starts to get 'normal' soon and will pop over to your blog to say 'hi'. All the best, Catherine :-)
