Tim Salmon, author of Dhiava, The Green Meridian (about a walk he did through the centre of France) and many other fascinating books, has put me right about the Vlachs which John Campbell studied for his DPhil.  They were not Vlachs but Sarakatsani, who speak 'a very archaic Greek dialect', whereas the Vlachs' language is (of course) related to Romanian.
