Bees and Beekeeping 

Paperback – July 13 2021

by Tiffany Francis-Baker


The essential primer on the role of honeybees in British history, covering biology, folklore, the history of beekeeping and the danger to bees posed by climate change.

One in every four bites of food we eat is thanks to bees. They pollinate 80 per cent of the world's crops and plants, but how much do we really know about them? Small, clever, and mysterious, the honeybee has long been celebrated in human culture as a sacred insect, a symbol of the sun, bridging the gap between our world and the next. They are expert communicators, skilled aviators, and natural alchemists, turning fresh nectar into sweet, golden honey. They are also in trouble and need our help. This guide explores their historic relationship with humans, the basics of beekeeping, and how we can help save our honeybee populations.
