Neither Lost Nor Found: the Archaeological Collections of Henry David Thoreau

by Patricia Pereira
November 26, 2017

For Thoreau, these tools were not artifacts so much as signposts on his intellectual road, and they figure strongly in his personal writings as he struggled to make sense of his life, Nature, and God.

“Neither Lost Nor Found:  the Archaeological Collections of Henry David Thoreau”

Sunday, December 3 at 2:30 p.m.

Holliston Historical Society

547 Washington Street

In honor of Thoreau’s 200th birthday this year, Holliston Historical Society is presenting: “Neither Lost Nor Found: the Archaeological Collections of Henry David Thoreau.”  This illustrated talk is being given by Gloria Greis, Executive Director of Needham Historical Society.

Although better known for his writings on nature and politics, Henry David Thoreau was an avid collector of the Native American tools and artifacts that he found in his rambles around Concord.  For Thoreau, these tools were not artifacts so much as signposts on his intellectual road, and they figure strongly in his personal writings as he struggled to make sense of his life, Nature, and God. 

Refreshments will be served following the talk.  There is no charge for this program.
