My colleagues and I at The Pericles Group, LLC are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for language and history lovers alike: Picturae: A Visual Latin Dictionary!
Latin? Dictionary!? What is this, the 1650s!?
Not so! Our goal is to develop a comprehensive, fully-illustrated, digital Latin-English dictionary that will give all teachers a FREE resource for culturally and historically accurate images associated with the ancient world. Most importantly, it will help situate Latin and history education in a richly authentic context that paints Rome as it really was: a diverse community made up of many different peoples, not just old, white men!
For information, please visit the Kickstarter page linked below to check out our explanatory video. Feel free to try the basic tools associated with the project at http://lapis.practomime.com/index.php
