For nearly twenty years Bernard Barcio produced Pompeiiana, a Latin language newspaper for students which was filled with articles, comics, puzzles and games. Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers has received exclusive rights to all 229 issues which they are planning to scan and make available online for Latin teachers worldwide. Other projects based upon Pompeiiana are also in the planning stages. As you would no doubt expect, the reaction of Latin teachers has been overwhelmingly positive!

Bolchazy-Carducci is asking Latin teachers for their help in locating 2 missing issues. Do you have them? Vol. 2, Issue 1 and Vol. 2, Issue 4. If so, Bolchazy-Carducci would love to hear from you!
