Published by History Society of Kaluga. With 9 photographs. Gamayunshchina was a territory on the right bank of Oka river near Kaluga. The name comes from ‘gamayun’ - the nickname of a person with any peculiarities in speech, other than local speech. It turns out that on the territory of the Kaluga right bank, thanks to historical conditions, developed a special way of life, its own talk, its own costume, differing from neighboring localities. Even though villages in this area existed since 16th century, this is the first attempt to study its ethnical differences.
