This collection of ancillary Latin narrative passages is intended to supplement the Cambridge Latin Course, and can be used to provide extra practice in translation and/or comprehension, or to provide material for evaluation purposes on tests and examinations. The stories have served both purposes in the classes for which they have been composed over the last 20 years. The Cambridge Latin Course is successful in its avowed aim to prepare students to read and understand Latin, mainly because its stories are so interesting that students want to be able to read them. That success, however, poses a challenge to the teacher/evaluator. To measure a student's successing in achieving the Course's primary aim, the student has to be asked to translate or answer comprehension questions at sight on a connected passage of Latin. The Fabulae Ancillantes answer this need, providing passages that are in line with the Cambridge Latin Course, yet are new to the student.
