    1. Well, I was not very fond of it, I must admit. 😀
      yes, they used the cursive in everyday life, Pompei’s graffitis are written in cursive as well as the Vindolanda letters, the most precious archeological treasure that the wall has given us. Now I am able to distinguish the word “soror” in the famous birthday invitation written by Sulpicia Lepidina, which is exhibited in the British Museum. 🙂

      1. I’ve never done Latin — but I enjoyed German paleography after my German got decent. Before that it was a struggle.
