The Roman Fortress of Isca (today's Caerleon, Gwent) was for more than 200 years the home of the Second Augustan Legion. At one time, the Second Augustan Legion at Isca consisted of about 5,500 well trained and heavily armed infantry men. In this photo, members of a Roman Re-enactment Society (probably the Ermine Street Guard) march into Caerleon Amphitheatre. This Roman Amphitheatre was originally designed to seat 5,000 spectators.
