Folio 63r - the eagle, continued. De apibus; Of bees | The Aberdeen Bestiary | The University of Aberdeen
Bees make honey and skilful hives.

The bees, all identical in appearance, zoom into their hives in three orderly rows.

The design emphasises their collective labours and orderliness. The bees look like a combination of hand grenades and shuttlecocks. They should have a head, thorax and abdomen, and four wings. The skeps or bee hives of coiled straw are accurate except for their fanciful colour. Initial type 2.

The Bridgettine Abbey of Syon
The great Abbey at Syon was the only Bridgettine house in England. The foundation stone was laid by Henry V in 1415, and in little more than a century of existence it reached a position of unique influence and importance, with especially close links to the Tudor dynasty.

After the fall of the Roman Empire, elephants virtually disappeared from Western Europe.
Since there was no real knowledge of how this animal actually looked, illustrators had to rely on oral and written transmissions to morphologically reconstruct the elephant, thus reinventing an actual existing creature. This tree diagram traces the evolution of the elephant depiction throughout the middle ages up to the age of enlightenment.
