Artifact Display Boxes Commemorate 50 Years of Alexandria Archaeology at Council Work Session

At the Alexandria City Council Work Session on September 27, 2011, the Alexandria Archaeological Commission (AAC) gave a presentation in celebration of 50 years of archaeology in the City. Commission Chair Kathleen Pepper discussed the accomplishments of Alexandria Archaeology over 50 years, since the first archaeological investigation at Fort Ward in 1961, as well as the future goals of the department and its commission.

Artifact display boxes with highlights from the City’s archaeology collections were presented to each councilmember and Mayor Euille for the duration of the meeting, underscoring their role as stewards of the collections.
