Discovering the Decades
These historical summaries, reprinted from the Alexandria Archaeology Volunteer News (1999), place Alexandria’s history in a wider perspective. Discovering the Decades was created as a series in Alexandria Archaeology's newsletter, in honor of the City's 250th Birthday in 1999. A number of City staff contributed to this project, including Al Cox, Pamela J. Cressey, Timothy J. Dennee, T. Michael Miller, and Peter Smith. Some of the original articles have been updated based on new research.
Travelers’ Accounts of the Alexandria Waterfront provides additional information and is also organized by decade.
