First written in response to a JACT survey of over 100 schools, and now endorsed by OCR, this textbook has become a standard resource for students in the UK and for readers across the world who are looking for a clear and thorough introduction to the language of the ancient Greeks. Revised throughout and enhanced by coloured artwork and text features, this edition will support the new OCR specification for Classical Greek (first teaching 2016). Part 1 covers the basics and is self-contained, with its own reference section. It covers the main declensions, a range of active tenses and a vocabulary of 250 Greek words to be learned. Pupil confidence is built up by constant consolidation of the material covered. After the preliminaries, each chapter concentrates on stories with one source or subject: Aesop, Homer's Odyssey and Alexander the Great, providing an excellent introduction to Greek culture alongside the language study. Written by a long-time school teacher and examiner, this two-part course is based on experience of what pupils find difficult, concentrating on the essentials and on the understanding of principles in both accidence and syntax: minor irregularities are postponed and subordinated so that the need for rote learning is reduced. It aims to be user-friendly, but also to give pupils a firm foundation for further study.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Fruhgeschichte, Antike, Note: 2,7, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin, Veranstaltung: Proseminar Ceasars gallischer Krieg, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der nun folgenden Arbeit mochte ich mich mit der romischen Armee befassen. Dazu muss man allerdings einschrankend sagen, dass eine umfassende Arbeit uber das romische Heerwesen konsequenterweise einen Zeitraum von mehreren hundert Jahren umfassen musste. In dieser langen Zeitspanne war das Imperum Romanum und mithin sein Heer mehrfach politischen, gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Anderungen unterworfen. Es wurde also den Rahmen der vorgegebenen Arbeit sprengen, die romische Armee durch ihre gesamte Geschichte zu begleiten, und samtliche Neuerungen bzw. Anderungen anzufuhren. Aus diesem Grund konzentriere ich mich auf die Zeit Caesars [100-44 v.Chr.], der sich ca.60 v. Chr. die Neuerungen der Heeresreform des Marius zu Nutze machte, um sich wahrend seiner Konsulnzeit in Gallien eine machtige Privatarmee' aufzubauen, die den Grundstock seiner spateren Macht legte. Meine Arbeit konzentriert sich auf die Frage, warum die romische Armee so erfolgreich war und in der ca. 1000-jahrigen Geschichte des romischen Reiches durch Eroberungsfeldzuge dazu beitrug, dass Rom von einem Stadtstaat zum romische Imperium heranwuchs. Dieses umfasste in seiner grossten Ausdehnung unter Kaiser Trajan (regierte von 98 bis 117 n. Chr.) den gesamten Mittelmeerraum, sowie Gallien, Britannien, den heutigen Balkan, die Turkei und Teile des nahen Ostens bis zum kaspischen Meer und dem persischen Golf. Ich nahere mich dem Gegenstand, die Armee Caesars, indem ich mich zunachst mit der Organisation der Armee befasse. Als Literatur fur die Erforschung der Organisation der Armee zur Zeit Caesars bietet sich das Werk von G.Veith, sowie von W. Rustow an. Als nachstes werde ich mich dann mit dem Exerzieren beschaftigen. Dieses Exerzieren
