Bee keeping in ancient Israel
This undated photograph made available by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem shows an archaeologist next to an opening of one of the ancient beehives found in excavations in Tel Rehov in northern Israel. Archaeologists digging in northern Israel have discovered evidence of a 3,000-year-old beekeeping industry, including remnants of ancient honeycombs, beeswax and what they believe are the oldest intact beehives ever found.

Todd points to some Short, Informative Videos
from archaeological digs.
The one that interested me most is The Beehives of Tel Rehov, about which I posted a while back. The video makes the extent of the find much clearer, and incidentally gives some idea of how a dig works.
