Crastinus Recruits Middle Schoolers

On January 20, 2012, primus pilus Gaius Crastinus spoke three times to the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Northview Middle School in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He was fortunate to have with him his nephew Trevorius (Latin III senior from North Central High School, Trevor Lanahan).  With Trevorius, he presented the ins and outs of the fiercest legion ever to fight for the eagles of Rome, Legion X.  As you can see, the students had a great time, especially when they got to check out the armor and learn to battle on stage!


  1. We did have some fun back in the day when I took Latin...

  2. I think language students in general, and Latin students in particular, have some of the best memories from high school. Just look at those engaged, excited faces. Who would not want to study Latin?

  3. What a great way to teach. It just occurred to me that this method is a fine application of neurolinguistic programming. No matter what the primary mode of learning is for a student, this applies to all.
