ABSTRACT
Thoreau's cabin site was discovered at Walden Pond 40 years ago, by Roland Robbins, as a result of an independent, amateur archaeology dig. Robbins, an expert on Henry David Thoreau, thinks of himself as an `historian who digs' and his unorthodox methods have not endeared him to academic archaeologists. Interview.
