Transcript of Latin
By: Layla Baden
Core 1 Social Studies
Latin was introduced to Italy in 1000 BC, when Indo-European immigrants from Northern Europe came. It started out as a local language in a small territory, on the Tiber River, called Latium. Later the people of Latium get into an organized community. In only a bit more of a century, the Roman's become friend's with Etruscan King's. The growth of Latin in it's early development was then very influenced by these non-Indo-European Etruscans. Over time, Latin was also changed by the Celtic migration's and their dialects from Northern Italy and by the dominant regional culture of the Greeks.

The Romans used a variety of tools for writing. Everyday writing could be done on wax tablets or thin leaves of wood. Documents, like legal contracts, were usually written in pen and ink on papyrus. Books were also written in pen and ink on papyrus or sometimes on parchment. Inscriptions were sometimes carved in stone on buildings and other monuments, like triumphal arches.
