A History of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers. A subtly nuanced picture of European Roma. There are too few solidly written, accessible books on the situation of Gypsy, Traveller and Roma (GTR) populations in the UK and mainland Europe that contextualise their long, often tortuous and highly contested histories.

And migrations. The Gypsies were persecuted, in France and elsewhere, with cyclical regularity in a vicious, inept and stupid manner. Almost as much as the Jews.” ― Jacques Yonnet, Paris Noir: The Secret History of a City 5 likes “I regained my soul through literature after those times I'd lost it to wild-eyed gypsy girls on the European streets.”.

Roaders or Roadies: Native born Americans who have led a traveling life similar to that of the Gypsies and Travelers, but who were not originally descended from those groups. Irish Travellers used to be referred to as ‘tinkers.’ A tinker is a skillful person that mends pots, pans and plates of locals as they move from place to place.

Travellers refer to non-travellers as “settled people”. Travellers used to be okay with being called ‘gypsy; until. These bohemian travelers were the inspiration for Iain McKell's stunning photographic journey "The New Gypsies," which explores the many journeys, both physical and emotional, of the modern-day traveler.

Rather than working in the standard documentary photo style, McKell creates dreamy images that look almost like fashion spreads, while simultaneously striking up a strange.

Gypsies vs Travellers. Gypsies and Travelers are distinct groupings of wandering people. Both groups are generally considered as nomadic societies that travel from one place to another. For most people, Gypsies and Travellers are one and the same.

However, the two groups are totally different from one another/5(6). Irish Travellers (Irish: an lucht siúil, meaning "the walking people") are a traditionally itinerant ethnic group whose members maintain a set of traditions.

They are predominantly English-speaking, though many also speak Shelta, and the majority are Catholics. Although they are often referred to as "Gypsies", Irish Travellers are not genetically related to Romani d: 30, ().

Just as the producers of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding promised ‘unprecedented access’, so too did numerous gypsiologists spend a summer living with a group of Gypsy Travellers gaining an insight into ‘the secret people’ before writing a book about their experiences.

The study conducted by Oakley occurred in the s around England and understandings of Gypsy-Travellers throughout history have provided us with the ideology that they have always been vagrant people travelling freely.

However, in this book, Oakley noted how Gypsy-Travellers living in Britain in the s had to deal with numerous laws. Gypsy people may seem split between their business life, which focuses outwardly on non-Gypsies, and on the other hand, their social life, which focuses inwardly on only Gypsies.

Nevertheless, as Silverman noted, some Gypsy Americans may present themselves as Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Armenians, Greeks, Arabs, and as other local ethnics in order to obtain jobs, housing, and welfare.
