Remember movies with flickering beeswax candles? It turns out beeswax was much too precious for people to waste on candles. So what was it used for? The ingenuity was incredible!

Learn all about the early days of beekeeping and bee hunting and how people used wax and honey from 18th-century reenactor Al Potyen. Enjoy this BYOB talk with an adult beverage (wine or beer only, please) – we suggest mead!
