Masculinity, disease protection and more - what did he beard mean during the Victorian era? What was the style? How and why did the style evolve and eventually die out? Professor Richard J Evans, Gresham Professor of Rhetoric, provides a brief summary of the changing role of facial hair in Victorian Britain. This is an excerpt from Professor Evans' Gresham lecture 'The Victorians: Gender and Sexuality', which can be accessed here: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-victorians-gender-and-sexuality All our lectures are available for free download from the Gresham College website, in video, audio or text formats: http://www.gresham.ac.uk Gresham College professors and guest speakers have been giving free public lectures in central London since 1597.
