Archaeology Along the Waterfront
Celebrate Virginia Archaeology Month with Robinson Landing and Alexandria Archaeology! The current site of Robinson Landing included one of the two original deep-water landings in Alexandria, and was later added to during the late 18th and early 19th century banking-out process that created new land along the waterfront. Test your 18th-century engineering skills and figure out a way to make new land without having it wash away into the Potomac, take part in a block-wide Scavenger Hunt, and join City archaeologists on timed walking tours of Robinson Landing.

Saturday, October 15
12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Guided Tour Times: 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. (30 min each)

Weather permitting. The event is free and open to the public, but tours are limited. Click here for more information and to reserve your guided tour time.
