Languages of publication
The history of Gypsies, whom scholars often consider as the so-called people without history, still raises many questions to researchers. The history of Gypsy culture can be reconstructed and interpreted from the fragments of ancient sources as well as through the memories of the living representatives of these ethnic groups. This article presents preliminary research on the history and training methods associated with Ursari (from the Romanian urs meaning ʻbearʼ) – a Gypsy group and, at the same time, a profession of animal trainers, particularly bear-handlers, from Romania.
