Presumably Georgia is also a Homeland of Honey


In Sakire village of Borjomi, in 2003 during Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline construction, a kurgan which dates back mid-third millennium BC was discovered. As a result of archeological excavations Samtskhe-Javakheti expedition of archeologists unearthed two jars from the robbed burial mound. Having examined the jars at the Palynological Laboratory of the Georgian National Museum, Eliso Kvavadze determined that the interred jars contained honey. The study also found flower pollen that comes from the plants of the environs.
Before the new discovery Egypt was considered the birthplace of honey, where it was found in the tombs of pharaohs, dating back 3 000 years.
It is now assumed that the world’s oldest honey is 5500 years old and it comes from Georgia.
