Archaeology Along the Waterfront

Celebrate Virginia Archaeology Month with Robinson Landing and Alexandria Archaeology! Archaeologists excavated a full city block prior to the construction of Robinson Landing. Learn what used to be at the site, including Hooe’s 18th century warehouse and store, the 19th century steam-powered Pioneer Mill, and the remnants of three merchant ships. Explore the area as a family with a free self-guided scavenger hunt or take a free guided tour of the waterfront with an archaeologist.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration required for guided tours. Weather permitting.

Guided tours begin at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and last 30 minutes.
