A3 Itinerant Craftsmen and Artisans

While most Central European Roma actually settled down hundreds of years ago, some Western European Sinti families continued to travel to various fairs and markets in their caravans. They dealt in cattle, horses or scrap metal or worked as smiths, grinders and tinkers. They usually followed traditional routes during the summer, returning to their home towns and villages for the winter.
