The incredible archaeology finds discovered at Robinson Landing in Old Town Alexandria were recently featured on NBC News4. Greg Griffin, EYA Multifamily Construction Vice President, and Eleanor Breen, Alexandria City Archaeologist, joined News4's Megan McGrath on a walking tour of the site to share the story of the discoveries. These included three ship hulls, building foundations and nearly 150,000 artifacts such as coins and dishware dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries.
It was an unlikely setting for one of Alexandria’s most significant archeological discoveries: an enormous storage garage in the city’s West End, typically used to house unused school buses and emergency vehicles. Instead, nine giant pools filled half the industrial facility, each holding a unique piece of history.
EYA and City of Alexandria Archaeology continue to receive national accolades for their work to preserve artifacts recovered at Robinson Landing on the Old Town waterfront.
