Field Study's Man in E17 weaves between the past and presents

Bee Wilson, in her story of the honey bee and us, The Hive, tells of how Jean Jacques Rousseau believed that honey hunting was a basis for a more democratic and equitable society, that 'a culture of gathering honey from mountains and hollow trunks of trees' necessitated a justice and good faith that are the antithesis of the ethics and morality of 'large, decadent, sugar-eating nations'. So it was on a very decadent Saturday afternoon I indulged in a solitary walk about Walthamstow in an attempt to make more connections to or with the Co-op beehives on Hoe St. While my feet trod the paths of E17 my mind wandered variously further afield.
