Barbara Bell wrote the first Minimus book 20 years ago, and since then this wonderful Latin guide for children (with illustrations by Helen Forte) has sold 147,00 copies worldwide. In this interview Barbara tells us about the past, present and future of Minimus and the Primary Latin Project, and shares some very welcome news about the future of ancient languages in UK primary schools.

You can find out more about Barbara and Helen’s work on the Minimus website. The Minimus books are published by Cambridge University Press.
