What's Left of Darwin's Beard

A descendant has discovered strands of Charles Darwin's beard hair.

It is believed the hair was taken from Darwin's desk in 1882 by female relatives, who were unable to collect a lock of his hair before he was buried.

His great-great grandson Randal Keynes said he found them in a box marked "remaining hair" whilst going through his Shropshire ancestor's possessions. [Link]
