Join Prince Aeneas as he flees burning Troy in order to fulfill the prophecy of founding what will later become Rome. Aeneas must overcome struggles between the gods and goddesses in his quest to discover his true fate. Based on Virgil’s classic Aeneid (written in Latin around 19 BC), this adventure will transport you back to 1200 BC. Aeneid Jr. is a paraphrased, abridged version of the Aeneid based on John Dryden’s translation of the Aeneid, written with middle grade students in mind.
