The Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Home We are going to enter a T-Shirt Competition. We are going to design a t-shirt about a travelling home. We will learn about the history of travelling homes. We will understand that we don’t all live in houses and have fixed addresses.
The Gypsy Wagon Gypsies have only lived in caravans for around 150 years. The Gypsy name for a wagon is a ‘vardo.’ Before this they walked on foot. They used horses and carts to move their belongings. They lived in tents called ‘benders’. The tents were made from twigs and canvas.
