The side was founded in 1976 as Isca Morrismen but we became a mixed (men and women) side in 2013.
We take our name from the Roman fortress at Caerleon (Isca Silurum) and this is why our emblem is a Roman helmet.
We dance in the Welsh national colours of red white and green and the rag coats we often wear are typical of Welsh border morris - just one of our styles of dance. The wooly hats we wear (when it is cold!) are patterned on the traditional 'Monmouth Cap'
You can also find another pattern for one here!
Our main dancing style is Cotswold Morris, consisting of a number of different village traditions.
Our 'dancing out' season usually extends from May 1st (when we dance at dawn in the Roman Amphitheatre at Caerleon) to August. We dance every Wednesday evening performing at a variety of real ale pubs across the county.

During the winter the side dances out on Boxing Day and has accompanied the Mari Llwyd on Twelfth Night. In the past, we have also performed a local Mummers Play for charity around Christmas time. We are involved with a traditional annual Wassail and attend a variety of dance events throughout the year often with sides from all over the country, particularly our good friends Sweyn's Ey from Swansea. We have even appeared on TV in Japan and Scandinavia as well as Wales!
