Romani Culture and Gypsy Identity
Thomas Alan Acton, Gary Mundy
Univ of Hertfordshire Press, 1997 - Social Science - 203 pages
Romany culture is perhaps the most Indo-European of all. The ancestors of the Gypsies left India around 1000 years ago and mixed with every culture on the way to produce a variety of Romany dialects and well-known cultural achievements from Hungarian Gypsy music to the English Gypsy caravan. Such images somehow co-exist, however, with continuous persecution.
