Posted in Latin VII

Ten days before the kalends of December

We started out by looking at the surprising Latin root of the English word filefīlum, a thread, in reference to the thread that mediaeval courts used to keep their documents in order (kind of like staples are used today).  Neat, eh? 🤓

We used most of the class to continue work on our model, particularly through painting. 🎨

Finally, at the end of class, we played a quick game of Quizlet Live.  It may be worth your while to review the locūtiōnēs, as they seemed to cause some trouble. 📓

Your homework is to continue your research for your part of the model.  Remember that non-fiction picture books from the library can be a great source of information and inspiration for what to include in your module of the model.  I also include below the image that I showed to you when we started the project.

The Arval Brethren were one of eldest of the many priestly colleges of the religion of the Ancient Roman state, tending to the cult of dea Dia, a nature-goddess, and of the ancestors so as to ensure a good harvest. During the reign of the emperor Augustus, the college was used as a tool of imperial unity and control. The term ‘arval’ comes from ‘arvum’, which means ‘a ploughed field’, and reflects their agricultural origin.
