In 2014-5, I was fortunate enough to obtain a British Academy-funded Mid-Career Fellowship to work on a substantial monograph on the so-called Carmina Latina Epigraphica, the Latin verse inscriptions, as ‘poetry of the people’.
Over the past year, I have published a wide range of blog posts on this issue.
In addition to that, I herewith publish, completely free of charge and for your reading pleasures, an edition (with introduction, translation, and notes) of the Latin verse inscriptions from Roman Britain as a simple, downloadable pdf document:
Kruschwitz, P. (2015): Undying Voices. The Poetry of Roman Britain. Reading [URL: thepetrifiedmuse.wordpress.com/undying-voices]
- First edition (July 2015): Undying Voices
This document will remain accessible from this page as well as from my academia.edu profile.
Please note that this document contains active hyperlinks to relevant online materials. While every effort has been made to establish these links’ functionality, I cannot accept any responsibility for the quality of the content, or the permanent availability, of any such linked pages.

If you enjoy this little anthology, or if you even manage to use it for your teaching (or learning!) at school, college, or university, expressions of appreciation will be gladly received at p.kruschwitz [at] reading [dot] ac [dot] uk.
Of course, should you have any suggestions for improvement or addition, I’d also be most grateful to have your comments: I’ll figure out how to produce a second edition eventually…
Finally, if you would like me to come to your institution and talk a bit more in depth about the amazing world of the Latin verse inscriptions – the other 99% of Latin poetry, from Britain and elsewhere! – to an interested audience, I’d be absolutely delighted to arrange a visit.
