Jim Ryan: History of Beekeeping

In November last year, (2017) Jim Ryan gave a fascinating talk on the history of beekeeping. Included were stories from our own county and he has very kindly provided us with some of the source material. Apologies to all, especially to Jim, for the long delay in getting this posted.
