In 'Bees and Their Keepers', Lotte Moller sheds light on the fascinating world of bees and bee lore from antiquity to the present day. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this handsome and well-designed hardback is a thoroughly engaging read.
The chapters walk us through the months and season, from January to December, contextualizing the life lived of our bee friends, their vibrant history, and our relationship with them. During the journey myths are debunked, occasions remembered (including a walk in the Yorkshire countryside) and honey tasted.
Inside there are killer bees, warring beekeepers, and even a Benedictine monk or two.
