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 www.vindolanda.com 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 :-)
