"Anglo-Saxon and Viking people wore their hair long and were often bearded. The Norman fashion, adopted to some extent in England, was to shave the face and back of the neck and head and to wear the remaining hair of the head short. This was the style of 1066, but fifty years later the Normans had taken to the styles of their former adversaries."

That's what they get for settling in France.

I have seen members of Norman re-enactment societies who have their hair cut like that now!!!


Why shaved just at the back? Is it because the nape of the neck is where you're most likely to find nits?

"William the Conqueror had turned the English out of their birthrights; and compelled them for necessity to be servants to him and to his Norman soldiers" - Gerrard Winstanley

We always have been, we are, and I hope that we always shall be detested in France - Duke of Wellington

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society... then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them... We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant."
Karl Popper

Probably something to do with them integrating with the French, two tone hair makes for better camaflauge when fleeing battle!

This isn't funny, but thought it was interesting,

Those are two bullets,
French and Russian, which collided in the air, back in 1854 during the war in Russia at the Crimean peninsula.
People say that a probability odds for this to happen is one to a billion,
and to find such an incredible reminder, 150 years later!!, was very lucky.

That certainly is interesting :D
It's even more rare with it being a French fired bullet coliding with a Russian fired one. The probability may be one in a billion for any old bullet, but for a French one It's more likely one in 2 billion - with the odds of it turning tail and running straight after leaving the barrel being 50/50 or more.
Very, very lucky indeed.
I bet both the blokes where made up the enemy bullet made contact with their bullet, and not their face :lol:

The disdainful curl of the lip is also present. Rich facial expression for a bunch of snail-eaters. :lol:
