Celebrate International Archaeology Day and Virginia Archaeology Month with City Archaeologist Francine Bromberg as she explains how the Alexandria Archaeological Protection Code works to preserve the City’s past. The lecture will highlight discoveries recovered and saved since the code’s passage by City Council more than 25 years ago. The talk will conclude with a look to the future as waterfront projects offer an opportunity to unearth, record, and interpret the buried layers and features that can provide insight into the City’s development on the Potomac. Learn more at:
