Preserving Alexandria’s Maritime Heritage
Curation, Conservation, and Data
by Alexandria ArchaeologyIncreased development along Alexandria's waterfront has uncovered the remains of a bustling late 18th/19th century waterfront neighborhood. In addition to four historic ships, archaeologists also unearthed the remains of wharves, warehouses, businesses, and homes (and their associated artifacts). These amazing finds need to be documented, preserved, conserved, and interpreted for today's public and future generations.
