Latin language is revived by pushy parents keen on an advantage for their kids

Latin language is revived by pushy parents keen on an advantage for their kids
- The classics department at a private school in London has found itself oversubscribed after it began offering Latin evening classes to parents. Take-up from parents at Colfe's School, in south-east London, has been so high it now runs two Monday night Latin classes.
Interest in the Roman Empire is also riding high due to a glut of popular novels, history books and television series. Expert classicists and historians, such as Mary Beard, Bettany Hughes and Michael Scott, are now celebrities while novelist Robert Harris' Cicero trilogy is to be adapted for the stage by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
