Bees in the Bible.


In Bee Culture, a magazine dedicated to bees. I found an article entitled The Ancient Apiary At Tel Rehov, Israel.
This article is about an archeological dig in Israel. They found twenty-five pots there. Inside each of these pots they found beeswax. This beeswax is believed to be from biblical times. This means that even though the bible never mentions it, bees were being kept during this period.
It also talks about some hieroglyphics that talk about having bees during the time of Pharaohs.

This title is by Michael Brown in Bee Culture. It can soon be found at the Bee Culture Website. I will post the address here when it come on to the website.
