Lecture: Alexandria’s Waterfront History: An Archaeological Update by Dr. Eleanor Breen, City Archaeologist Presented by the Alexandria Historical Society June 28 Alexandria’s History Museum at the Lyceum 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

Dr. Eleanor Breen, City Archaeologist, will provide an exciting and informative update on the research, preservation, and interpretation of Alexandria’s seaport history. A new phase in understanding the growth and changes along the city’s waterfront began in 2015 as development along Alexandria’s historical shoreline triggered archaeological work in advance of construction. Project by project, the remains of wharves, warehouses, dwellings and house lots, industries, privies, and hull remnants of four ships emerged from the waterlogged depths at the Potomac River’s edge.
