EYA consultants conducting archaeological research at the Robinson Terminal South site have discovered the historic burial remains of two individuals. The finding is consistent with earlier periods in history when the deceased were not always buried in cemeteries. In accordance with Virginia law, we secured a permit from the Virginia Department of Historic Resources that allows for the investigation of the remains. We will continue to work with the State, the City of Alexandria and our archaeological consultants to determine the appropriate next steps.
