Description
 
The fascinating story of bees & honey from the Stone Age to the present. Honey is nature in a pot, gathered in by bees from many different environments. Here, Ellis explores how they can make up to 24,000 journeys to produce a single pound of honey, & reveals how 100,000 bees can live & work together in total discipline. Great thinkers have been inspired by bees, from Aristotle to Shakespeare, Charles Darwin & Frank Lloyd Wright. Ellis also shows the connection with bees in the Egyptian pharaohs’ elaborate burial chambers in the pyramids, the medieval guilds, the berserk drunken rituals of mead drinking, the Mormons’ epic journey west, candlelight in churches, sealing wax, & feast & famine. Illustrations.
