Did you know there were beekeepers in the Iron Age, 300 B.C.?

I don't think it was called "the land of milk and honey" for nothing.

Pretty wide-spread by that time. I believe the Egyptians were keeping bees as long as 5000 years ago. The Spaniards brought them (honeybees) to the Americas in the late 15 or early 1600's.
