I think it’s safe to say that I’ve changed a lot since the 1980s – in terms of physical appearance anyway. Like so many of my generation, I waved my 80s barnet goodbye as I embraced baldness and middle age. But, what I lost on top of my head, I traded in for a luxuriant beard adorning my face!
As the Beardy Historian, I run this site and a very popular sister blog on the Knights Templar. You can also contact me through the Beardy History site with full details on me and latest activity. FYI – I do appear on the telly talking about all things historical from time to time so follow me on the Beardy History blog to keep up.
Otherwise, keep your comments coming here on a period in my life that was magical – and I’m sure you agree. It was a great time to be alive – if rather turbulent and crisis-ridden.
