Abstract

This historiographical article aims to do three things. First, to construct a working overview of historical and aligned scholarship focussed on the history of Britain's Gypsy and Traveller populations, to give non-specialists an understanding of the key pieces of scholarship and debates within the field. Second, to argue that it is not sufficient for these histories to remain only a concern of 'Romani' scholars, and so exist largely separate from both mainstream histories and histories of Britain's other minority populations. And third, to offer some thoughts on possible avenues for future research and the potential for more joined-up scholarship.
