60 Years young and still going strong!
The Ancient Men undertook their first tour in 1952 which
was based at Fairford, Gloucestershire in collaboration with The Travelling
Morrice. Since then they toured far and wide, from New Mexico to Japan;
more than 100 tours in over 12 countries. To celebrate our Golden Jubilee
we revisited the very first tour during August 2002, also accompanied
by The Travelling Morrice. In 2012 the Diamond Jubilee Tour was based
near Pontadawe, in South Wales. The first and only recorded tour by Oxford University Mens Morris was based at Trefusis in Cornwall
