The Zoroastrian community is the oldest of the Asian communities in the United Kingdom. The first travelers came in the 18th century and the formal Association was established in 1861. This community has a longer trajectory of settlement than any other Asian group in Britain. This chapter provides a brief overview of Zoroastrian history and teaching, and situates the story of Zoroastrian migration to Britain in the context of other groups who came from Asia in the 20th century, the laws which governed that entry, and their experiences within Britain. The last section of this chapter clarifies some questions regarding terminologies.
