Thoreau's Cabin

Following yesterday's post on the Thoreau radio programme on the BBC, reader Stephen Ray Peterson quite rightly pointed out that the photo alongside was in fact a replica, not the actual cabin. He also kindly pointed to a great selection of photos and illustrations of the cabin, then and now, at Fourpeaks including the one above of the inside of the cabin, complete with writing table. He also points to an excellent article on the 'discovery' of the cabin at Walden Pond at the University of Kentucky Program for Archaeological Research which is well worth a browse indeed.
