Honey as medicine had already been mentioned in the year 2700 BC

It is difficult to say when ancient people moved from harvesting the honey to beekeeping, but archaeological evidence confirms that 6000 years ago in Egypt home bees were bred. Especially honey areas were in the upper reaches of the Nile. Egyptians had transported there their hives - baskets of straw or reeds, or even pottery - in large wicker rafts, to return home after a while with a rich collection of honey. Symbolic image of bee adorned royal emblem during the life of Pharaoh and after his death - adorned his tomb. In ancient Egypt all Egyptian pharaohs wore the title "Lord of the bees."
