Explore the world of birds within an ancient Roman context—entirely in Latin! Using fewer than one-hundred unique Latin words, this Explore Latin reader offers an immersive introduction to the significance of birds in Roman culture and religion. From crows and ravens to eagles and owls, see how these creatures were represented in Roman (and Greek) imagery. Copious color photographs support the Latin text, helping to make information readily comprehensible to novice learners.

The topics introduced in Explore Latin: Aves, of interest in their own right, also prepare readers to transition to more complex Latin in the Encounter Latin novella, Augury Is for the Birds.
