Hone your skills

Learn Ancient Greek and Latin at Textkit, where you can download grammars, readers, and e-books to learn and practice your Greek and Latin skills.

Try the Roman Numerals Test at the Roman Numeral and Date Converstion with Roman Calculator website.

Calculate days of the week for old-style dates, determine the date of Easter, calculate regnal years for English monarchs, and more at Ian's Historical English Calendar.


Cool tools
