3000 year old bee hives found


Archaeologists working in Israel have found evidence of a thriving beekeeping industry in the city of Rehov. The hives date from around 900 BC and are the oldest examples of beekeeping ever found. Beekeeping has been found before in ancient texts and artwork, but this is the first time that any examples of intact hives have been found.

    Does anybody know?
